Facilia offers a range of services, in addition to the technical activities and projects it is currently committed to. We are a company with ideas that have developed into successful outputs (e.g. Ecolego) and we intend to expand our business interests into a number of areas, including:
- Technology transfer to third world countries
- Commercialisation of own developed software
- Application of risk assessment methodology into differing fields
- Webcasting and E-learning solutions
Facilia is a small company but benefits from calling upon a range of independent experts to complement its expertise when needed. Our associate consultants promote Facilia's expertise through their support and willingness to contribute to Facilia's activities. The staff's background also provides extra efficiency due to the vast number of languages that are represented.
Technical assistance services in the risk assessment and simulation modelling fields. Facilia has been invited as a consultant to the IAEA to participate in expert missions, e.g. Ukraine. Within safety assessment, Facilia leads a working group as part of the SADWRMS (Safety Assessment Driving Radioactive Waste Management Solutions) project.
Risk Assessment services in the field of environmental and human health protection. Facilia uses the knowledge gained whilst developing its tools and software to implement risk assessment models applicable to a wide range of scenarios.
Facilia develops software for creating dynamic models and performing deterministic or probabilistic simulations, software helping in performing safety assessments as well as client-specific web and database applications. Software development at Facilia is mainly performed in Java, .NET and MATLAB®. This contributes to making our software products highly accurate and portable.
We offer education of staff unfamiliar with modelling skills, safety and risk assessments. Courses are held either at the Facilia office or on site, when this is more convenient ot our clients. For example, Ecolego training courses have taken place for Swedish, Latvian, Finninsh, Russian and Lithuaninan radiation protection authorities. This years Ecolego workshop will be held in October at our offices in Alvik.
Facilia also participate in training courses for the IAEA, within the fields of risk assessment and safety.
Facilia is at the moment advancing in the fast growing area of E-learning. The concept of e-learning covers all forms of online learning and teaching, and is being used by a growing number of universities and institutions worldwide. This form of online knowledge distribution is both cost effective and provides new possibilities to create dynamic learning approaches. It also enables knowledge to be distributed to much larger audiences.
Facilia is a certified partner with Sonic Foundry and an active reseller of their webcasting platform Mediasite. Mediasite is market leading in the area of lecture capture, enterprise and event capture and provides a complete solution to the costumer by providing both hardware for capture, tools for editing and a platform for distributing the final product.
At the moment, Facilia is involved in the project CONNECT (Connecting the Network of Networks for Enhanced Communication and Training), where a web-based platform is being developed to enable members of the IAEA to access technical learning material and take part of training courses online.
The CONNECT project is hosted by the IAEA and is being funded by the EuropeAid department at the European Commission, with aims to facilitate the distribution of knowledge in the fields of radioactive waste management.
