Event at Vakbeurs Facilitair, Utrecht

Tags : 

A lot of facilities in the world experience animal nuisance. A lot of problems with animals can cause loss of resources, cause hygiene or safety issues or can damage facilities. Bird Control Group nowadays networks not only with agriculturists, but also with facility managers. Facilities that for example store grain or other food, can possibly attract a lot of animals.

Joep Everaers, Project manager at BCG for the LIFE Laser Fence project together with Sales and Customer support colleagues, Corné Sweep, Karlijn Eelvelt and Lisette van der Knaap, participated in the event dedicated to the facility managers – Vakbeurs Facilitair in Utrecht.  The event is organized to help facility managers to network, learn about new facility products and find solutions to the problems that they might experience at the site for example pest nuisance. Bird Control Group’s team spoke with facility managers and pest controllers that have animal issues on their rooftops, parking places and food storages. These facility managers experienced nuisance from all kinds of pest species such as rats, mice and birds. When the team of Bird Control Group presented the visitors a solution to repel birds and possibly pest animals in the future with the laser bird repellent, they were very enthusiastic to have such system themselves. Some other pest control companies present at the show were not aware of the LIFE Laser Fence project and are waiting to hear more about innovative products to prevent animals from intruding their facilities.

Life Laser Fence at LJMU Faculty of Engineering and Technology Research Week

Tags : 

Research Week at the Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET) at Liverpool John Moores University celebrates the significant contribution that postgraduate research students (PGRs) make to academic life, allowing students a platform to share their own research and gain valuable feedback. More than 150 PGRs participate in the event and welcome a range of external keynote speakers.

As part of the activities of this year’s Research Week, Some of the many research projects in the faculty were invited to have a stand display and explain their projects. This is a direct response to queries from PGR students who wanted to know a bit more about the many and varied areas of research where the FET is involved and the practical applications of the different areas of expertise.

LIFE Laser Fence was present at this year’s FET Research Week and attracted considerable attention from the research students. They clearly showed an understanding of the needs for systems like these, which can in an environmentally friendly manner deal with the problem of unwanted animals in agricultural settings.

Participation of PGRs also enhances understanding of current post-graduate research activity across the Faculty and promotes inter-faculty communication and research networks, providing students with the opportunity to support like-minded colleagues. The conference develops researching skills crucial to presenting, writing, poster preparation and communicating research to an audience.
