A sustainable world
Environmental impact of human activity, and how to make it more sustainable, remain at the heart of engineering innovation in 2022. No longer can we seek to simply mitigate the current environmental impacts; we need to eliminate them early in the design process! Simcenter recently launched an Engineer Innovation issue dedicated to sustainability, in this issue, we see our customers challenging and improving our environment comprehensively not focused only on carbon emissions. Real change requires tremendous effort and imagination, and this edition is further evidence that our customers really are tremendous.
What could be more imaginative than to grow our food underwater, Nemo’s Garden is our lead article. It is also easy to be swept along in thinking that environment is our carbon footprint or the amount of plastic waste we as individuals produce, but as I consider the customer success stories in this issue, I am again reminded that they are being far more imaginative than that.
Our customers continue to make our everyday lives better, our partner NVIDIA develops faster GPUs and Cloud Computing enabling us to work anywhere, helping not only to reduce commute times but increase team connectivity across the globe. From making the work environment more flexible to improving medical outcomes for ventilated patients with Vyaire medical, by developing form-fitting masks to better built environments with ArcAero reducing the risk of death from dangerous downdrafts on skyscrapers or returning mobility to stroke sufferers with HEIR-AF University. And these solutions are not all Earth-bound they even extend to the International Space Station, we continue to see engineers seeking better and better outcomes for humankind, and not limiting themselves to just reducing carbon emissions.
À bientôt, Jean-Claude
