“The sharing economy, and in particular peer-to-peer product sharing, has the potential of increasing access while reducing investments in resources and infrastructure. But is this always the case? Using game theory, we show that contrary to the popular belief that sharing is always beneficial, it may result in higher asset ownership and usage e.g., road congestion.”--- Costas Courcoubetis

“As manufacturing systems become more intelligent and more capable, designers can become more ambitious regarding the intelligent products they develop.  This paper provides insights into the design methods that will be needed for intelligent products and product-service-systems that will be produced by future intelligent manufacturing systems.”--- David William Rosen

“Keratin material have unique biological and mechanical attributes due to the protein’s molecular structure and organisation into tough, flexible and water-interactive appendages of the human biology. The current study evaluates the consolidation of keratin by selective laser sintering process, a key enabler of additive manufacturing.”---Rajkumar Velu
