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.
Study to develop/commercially validate an inter-modal system for trans-european freight transfer between nordic region and s.E. Europe whose central building block will be a "blue shuttle train" connecting two inter-modal centres.
Develop a system to make welders certicates more effective and improve distribution and access to the certificates through the internet. Also including information about the european welding federation education scheme.
Pulsed laser deposition (pld) is a well-established laboratory coating technology. Up to now pld has not become a standard industrial coating technique. The aim of this project is to optimise the suitability of pld for industrial applications.
New bioactive nanostructured composite implant materials will be developed for human bone substitutes. Development is based on the plasma processing of ceramic nanopowders and chemical technology for the production of nanosized hydroxyapatite powders.
Assisting european industry to implement the eurocodes for steel construction quickly and efficiently through the development and use of a cooperative, internet based discussion and advisory forum on best implementation practice.
Investigation of the production parameters (fibres, yarns, weaving, knitting, dyeing and finishing) for woven and knitted fabrics of high upf (ultraviolet protection factor) and optimum resistance to weather conditions.
Aims to investigate the physical and chemical properties of some modern textile fibres in order to develop advanced methods and norms for distinguishing them from raw materials and woven fabrics.
Aim: to investigate defects in textile yarns and fabrics then to develop procedures for recognition, classification and detection of causes and establishment of influences on quality parameters with the development of procedures for preventing and remedying negative effects.
