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
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.
Creation of a platform to stimulate r & d and technology transfer for wood products and in the processing industries, in order to initiate projects emphasising the environmentally-friendly role of wood.
The aim of the project is to develop multi-operational rotor die-forming technology and suitable equipment, combining compacting, sintering, coining, retreating and control for production of precision parts from powder materials.
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.
