National Instruments and LENR Workshop in Italy
|July 6, 2012||Posted by Jack Cole under Uncategorized|
A mailing list subscriber of the Vortex-1 list was kind enough to translate some excerpts of NI’s Stefano Concezzi’s talk at the July 2, 2012 workshop in Rome. It is interesting to see how involved NI is in supporting cold fusion research.
Here is the translated excerpt:
[...] What is the master plan a company [such as National Instruments] should have? First of all, to find, analyze results from public and private institutions and researchers in good faith who want to show their work and double check them. And if possible, replicate them. To determine who are the top 10, simply because we have limited resources; otherwise it would be interesting to interview them all. Finally, to establish cooperations with them to make use of our products to accelerate research in this field. These are the studies [referring to a presentation slide] we have sponsored or we are working with: the first one is professor Kim's from Purdue University, a famous university in the USA, and it's based on the theory of condensed matter, therefore Bose-Einstein's, an almost 80-year old theory. The aim is to find the mathematical model and make it available to any student. So, We're working with Purdue University, with professor Kim, and we will present in August a mathematical model, and therefore tools that will be able to be used by anybody, freely available on the web. Same with MIT - Massachusetts Institute of Technology - Professor Hagelstein, or "Hagelsteen" as he prefers to be called - based on the theory of quantum fields inside the electrons. But also with the Los Alamos National Lab, with the University of Missouri, with the University of Bologna, where... A thing that hasn't been cited so far is that, excluding professor Preparata, there have been two Italian scientists, two university professors who made science [in this field] progress significantly: one from the University of Siena [Piantelli] and one from the University of Bologna [Focardi]. Both are still alive, still working. Well, one of these has a successor: professor Levi from the University of Bologna, Department of Physics. We have sponsored their laboratory. Same with ENEA. An ongoing collaboration. But also with INFN Frascati [Celani], with the Universities of Kobe, Osaka, with the University of Texas in Austin, with the French CEA [Commissariat à l'énergie atomique], with the Stanford Research Institute and with the Naval Research Laboratories in the United States. So, Japan, United States and Europe. And again, to make sure we don't [favor any territory in particular].
