The overall objective is to provide the european structural steelwork industry with the means to overhaul itself by introducing purpose-developed, computer integrated manufacturing (cim) systems.
New industrial products and technologies as well as craft skills for conservation and restoration work. Establishment of technical standards and guidelines for examination and treatment of objects and monuments.
Objective: the aim is to generate sub-projects developing high technology products, processes, systems or services contributing to solving some of europe's major environmental problems.
Will support further development of abatement strategies within europe by providing an improved scientific basis for the quantification of source-receptor relationships for photo-oxidants and acidifying substances.
Creation of a platform to stimulate r & d and technology transfer for wood products and in the processing industries, in order to initiate projects emphasising the environmentally-friendly role of wood.
Cooperative r & d initiative defined to develop and exploit the strengths of the european packaging and interconnection industries in information & communication technology systems (icts) transport and component manufacturing processes.
The focus will be on both on eco-design and end-of-life management, particularly because of the legislative impact of the european commission's new directive (dg xi), which will probably come into force in 2003.
Collaborative industrial r&d programme dedicated to "software for software-intensive systems" that is being developed by the european information technology producers and users' industry to boost european competitiveness.
The objective of this strategic project is to apply new biotechnological tools and agronomic technologies to improve the european forestry sector.
Dna will be a r&d strategic eureka factory cluster on advanced competitive and sustainable processes for relevant european manufacturing sectors. Dna will launch and clusterise several projects with special attention to sme's.
