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.
An urban air quality management information and decision support system integrating monitoring, modelling,gis, expert systems and decision support in a client/server architecture for easy access in local and wide area networks.
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.
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.
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.
Providing a methodology for product dev. Teams in order to understand weak areas or barriers to creativity. A holisitic approach will be synthesised that utilises the most appropriate creativity tools in order to maximise creative output.
Investigation and characterisation of the performance of a new category of optical filters based on the combination of single mode polymer optical fibres and bragg gratings in order to offer a new level of performance compared to existing technologies.
The use of new, low cost processing agents in polymer processing as a way of reducing flow instabilities. This will improve the quality of the parts made and will increase the rate of production.
Development of a blended learning system that meets the requirements of harmonized european guidelines for the education of welders. The system will cover the theoretical content as well as practical welding tasks.
Webair builds a web-based real-time multi-media information and decision support system for urban and industrial air quality assessment and management integrating on-line monitoring and modelling, in support of relevant european directives.
