Experimental and theoretical determination of the distribution of primary and secondary air pollutants in order to understand and predict their chemical transformation and their transport over europe.
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.
Draw up a project of waste utilisation products from building demolition and production of building materials and their components for applications in highways and attendant infrastructure.
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.
The objective of this strategic project is to apply new biotechnological tools and agronomic technologies to improve the european forestry sector.
This will set new standard in cartoon productivity, by being a fully digital process as compared with traditional methods in which drawings had to be made by designers. It represents huge cost savings and increased customer value.
Development and experimental production of measurement standards for laser beam/optics characterization. Technology and instrumentation for on-line and off-line beam and optics monitoring.
Re-engineering of international transport along main european corridors for sustainable freight mobility. The aim is to stimulate freight chains in europe, improve and develop competitiveness for intermodal transport chains.
Friction stir welding (fsw) will be applied to a range of materials/be researched to achieve high welding speeds in increased joint thickness. Processes will be industrialised for real components and applied in commercial production.
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.
