The overall objective is to provide the european structural steelwork industry with the means to overhaul itself by introducing purpose-developed, computer integrated manufacturing (cim) systems.
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.
The aims of eurosilva are to advance knowledge on stress and disease phenomena, forest decline, defence mechanisms, normal functioning in healthy trees and to promote forest productivity with respect to quantity and quality of wood.
Provide knowledge on the corrosion influence of wet and dry deposited air pollutants for chosen important building materials in different positions on buildings. Stockholm sites and nidaros cathedral (norway) are prime study objects
Throat cancer often results in removing the larynx (with vocal folds and epiglottis). To restore the larynx function, an implantable artificial larynx will be developed with a voice-restoring device/epiglottis allowing normal speaking.
Design, manufacture and evaluation of suspension components for vehicles to evaluate the advantages of using fibre- reinforced plastics to reduce mass, integrate parts, increase durability and reduce damage to road surfaces
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.
New uses for environmentally beneficial moulding material binders (alkali silicate basis) for the foundry industry with optimal properties for moulding material preparation and used moulding material regeneration/recycling.
