Aimtech is a complex, result-oriented project. Subject to success, it will provide an opportunity for plastics processors to reduce manufacturing costs through increased production efficiency.
Development of a framework for the design and manufacture of a new generation of highly customisable and flexible assembly cells over the internet for a number of strategic industrial sectors in europe.
Development of procedures to test compliance of body-mounted, wearable and portable telecommunications equipment with guidelines restricting electromagnetic exposure. Procedures have to be suitable, accurate and reproducible.
Industrial r & d programme dedicated to communication techniques, systems and services. R & d in telecommunications is the key to help europe keep its leading position in industrial competitiveness and make the digital age accessible to all european citizens.
New polymer composites reinforced with carbon nanofibres and nanotubes will be investigated. The goals will be optimisation of the production leading to the best product for mechanical properties and the development of prototypes.
There are two main challenges: 1. To become sustainable by reducing resource consumption, managing transport and utility networks in a sustainable way, reducing environmental and man-made impacts, improving safety and security and protecting cultural heritage; 2. To become a demand-driven sector.
The eureka tourism project will join companies interested in tourism, culture and leisure with others focusing on the development of technologies applicable for tourism use and services.
Pro-factory is a european network that aims to bring forward and coordinate applications-oriented, bottom-up, collaborative r&d projects in production and robotics for greater competitiveness and sustainability.
The consortium wants to develop breakthrough transmission technology for single shaft turbines, including delivering variable output rotation speed, when having constant input speed. This results in a much wider range of turbine applications against 50% size and 50% costs of prevalent technologies.
The eu-directive 2004/40/ec will pose new requirements on employers. The objective is to develop the procedures and instrumentation to demonstrate in-situ compliance with these requirements, in particular, for the automotive, railway and metal fabrication industries.
