Carbon dating inventor
The platform provides these academics with the opportunity to transform their ideas into commercial success and gives them a better chance of winning funding by matching with the right entrepreneur.Nafici Environmental Research Ltd (NER) is a new low carbon start-up that successfully built its business with support from the Climate-KIC Accelerator, which provided grants, workshops and help with their launch preparation.Radiocarbon dating methods are frequently used in determining the ages of ancient artifacts and fossils.
Its geologic location was the Hell Creek Formation in the State of Montana, United States of America.
One of the biggest factors in throwing off carbon dates is the fact that nuclear testing, which began around 1950, “blasted out radiation [into the atmosphere] that scientists see clearly as a spike in the radiocarbon record” (ibid.).
Most problematic in absorbing this spike in radiation has been charcoal, which scientists use frequently in their dating of ancient finds.
Aled Thomas, Director at Climate-KIC UK, says: “Matching the right entrepreneur or business person to the right inventor can be a crucial part of the process for a new technology.
Greater collaboration between inventors and entrepreneurs will ultimately stimulate more business interest in climate innovation, leading to new revenue, jobs and economic growth in Europe.” Inventors on the Exchange come from the UK’s best research institutes, including University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Imperial College London, Newcastle University and the University of Edinburgh.
