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.
Environmental pollution/unwanted plant-soil relationships reduce crop yield quality and quantity. This project will develop new cereal cultivars tolerant to abiotic stress and make them available for environmentally-sound agriculture.
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 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.
Re-engineering of international transport along main european corridors for sustainable freight mobility. The aim is to stimulate freight chains in europe, improve and develop competitiveness for intermodal transport chains.
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.
