Large vacuum collector for thermal solar energy - making the technology cost-effective for district heating, apartment blocks and industry applications by using the solar collector both for collecting and transporting energy.
Design, develop and test an innovative integrated system to neutralise mined areas. This system will enable the position and kind of mines used to be determined with a 99% accuracy rate.
Development of a new generation of cost effective and advanced condensing gas-fired air heaters with low emissions. The major emphasis will be on the development of a heat-exchanger matching these requirements.
The aim is to minimise use of antibiotics in pig feeds. in vitro and in vivo experiments will be carried out to seek alternatives and develop strategies for testing of those alternatives.
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.
Carry out research into relevant european strategic manufacturing data and organise a manufacturing 2020 foresight workshop to help identify and capture international views.
