New industrial products and technologies as well as craft skills for conservation and restoration work. Establishment of technical standards and guidelines for examination and treatment of objects and monuments.
Investigation of corrosion processes of different copper alloys according to certain environments, and develop special conservation therapies. (Outdoor bronze monuments selected).
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.
Development of thin-film coatings for integrated optics grating couplers in order to enhance their sensitivity, selectivity and speed of response for sensing applications in medicine.
Development and arrangement of flexible product and process- oriented organisational structures in the mould making industry assisted by an integrated information system based on the total quality management concept.
The project encompasses complex solution of a bioremediation technology:microbial degradation of organic pollutants,whole cell immobilization, reactor design and environmental engineering enabling tailor-made bioremedial actions.
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.
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.
Improving the competitiveness of the european multimedia industry on the worldwide market.
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.
