Word, word, word: still words always words

It is in fact with this tune that Ademe launched its last campaign: Energy savings. Let's make it quick !

But a little step back is needed to better understand my point of view about this organization.

On October 11, 2001, I supported my end of study project about the Pantone process in front of nearly 30 people (exceptional fact for a simple end of studies project defense) at ENSAIS. The conclusion of this work (a large part of which is available on this site) was that many promising aspects required additional research, particularly in terms of pollution control. Obviously a lot of Mr Pantone's claims could not be confirmed (and still are not) but many aspects required further study.

Research that I was obviously ready to do during an extension of my course. I recall, for information, that ANVAR was a partner in the project but could not support individual projects: a company, a public establishment or an association had to apply for assistance. However, since I was a graduate, I “no longer belonged” to ENSAIS. I was therefore a private individual… not being able to be eligible for an ANVAR grant.

A week later I therefore contacted ADEME to ask them for the path to follow, I attached to them the summary (also available on this site) of my project. The only response I received, 4 months later, I specify, was an acknowledgment of receipt, I quote: “We have received your request and sent it to the transport service. Have they contacted you? " 
The answer was obviously no, so I hastened to answer this email by asking them again what to do to develop this project. I'm still waiting for the answer to this email! These events are from February 2002, all emails have been kept as proof of my good faith.

I also enclose a copy of a fax proving that ADEME is aware of this research but has done absolutely nothing (concerning me) to help them, at least apparently!

In conclusion, I would say: it's up to you to make up your own mind. I wanted nothing more than to be able to work on this system (and its derivatives) to understand and improve it but it seems that this is not possible in this country. All this in permanent hypocrisy ...

So where is the freedom of research in our country?
