New industrial products and technologies as well as craft skills for conservation and restoration work. Establishment of technical standards and outlines for examination and treatment of objects and monuments.
The aim is to develop innovative procedures to create accurate copies of archaeological findings without touching them. It includes procedures such as computer tomographies, thermojet printing, rapid prototyping, coatings/mouldings.
By a systematic study of the relations between coating characteristics/their performance on forming tools,optimised coatings will be developed to enhance the reliability and technical possibilities of cold forming processes.
Development of new types of coatings to be applied to extrusion tools for bricks and tiles. This will increase the life of tools, improve the efficiency of the extrusion process and thus reduce the associated costs.
Study, development and realisation of turnkey plants for the furniture industry to meet changing customer demands.
Investigation and technological development of new products based on exfoliated vermiculite, to tackle environmental pollution caused by liquid aliphatic, aromatic and polycyclic hydrocarbons and their derivatives.
Design and target-oriented synthesis of various novel estrogen receptor modulators. Assessment of their pharmacological abilities to act as estrogens in the skeletal and cardiovascular systems and antiestrogens against breast cancer.
To develop specific processing systems, as reduced chrome, nonchrome, aldehyde, oxazolidine and heavy vegetable combination and /or resin tannage which gives desired blend of properties for the restauration of antique leathers.
The main objective is to provide scientific and technological support, and general technical assistance to european smes wishing to integrate micro and nano technology into their products. Non-european countries will also be made aware of minatuse activities.
Monitoring insects and fungi in stored rice from the field to industrial areas, as part of risk assessment and as a decision-making tool. Application of alternative less noxious control methods than traditional ones.
