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.
Flexible communication network in the field of industrial production systems integrated in company operations to develop competitiveness in mfg. Methods/design, mfg.Systems/ technology and organisation/human resource development.
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.
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.
Development and experimental production of measurement standards for laser beam/optics characterization. Technology and instrumentation for on-line and off-line beam and optics monitoring.
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.
Development of a breakthrough laser cutting system for thin metal sheet replacing standard punching techniques. The foreseen development requires the achievement of very high cutting speed (up to 100 m/min) and advanced control concepts.
To develop new products based on miniaturisation, autonomy, reliability, high speed and low energy, using micro and nanotechnologies by addressing heterogenous technologies for ambient intelligent vision. This cluster is the follow-up of eurimus ii and pidea+.
Pro-factory is a european network that aims to bring forward and coordinate applications-oriented, bottom-up, collaborative r&d projects in production and robotics for greater competitiveness and sustainability.
