Experimental and theoretical determination of the distribution of primary and secondary air pollutants in order to understand and predict their chemical transformation and their transport over europe.
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.
The main aim is to design, investigate and develop laser systems and technologies for the restoration of monuments, and art works, environmentally-friendly methods for the fast and precise treatment of objects.
Creation of a platform to stimulate r&d/technology transfer dealing with laser/optics technologies/their applications, e.G. In processing industries, in order to initiate projects emphasizing cooperation between industry/r & d instititions.
Investigation of the production parameters (fibres, yarns, weaving, knitting, dyeing and finishing) for woven and knitted fabrics of high upf (ultraviolet protection factor) and optimum resistance to weather conditions.
Aims to investigate the physical and chemical properties of some modern textile fibres in order to develop advanced methods and norms for distinguishing them from raw materials and woven fabrics.
Aims to investigate the production of fibres and fabrics with semi-permanent antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal and deodorising properties.
There are two main challenges: 1. To become sustainable by reducing resource consumption, managing transport and utility networks in a sustainable way, reducing environmental and man-made impacts, improving safety and security and protecting cultural heritage; 2. To become a demand-driven sector.
