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 is to achieve a stable fed-batch or continuous production of la on a large scale. Emphasis will be put on selecting strains producing l(+) la and the efficient integration of the bioprocess with downstream processing.
The objective of this strategic project is to apply new biotechnological tools and agronomic technologies to improve the european forestry sector.
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.
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.
Providing the tools needed by water bio-treatment designers and operators to manage tailor-made innovations in order to create more efficient wastewater treatment processes to remove very complex and rare mixtures of organic water contaminants.
Development of a blended learning system that meets the requirements of harmonized european guidelines for the education of welders. The system will cover the theoretical content as well as practical welding tasks.
