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.
Using selected historical buildings as a basis, determine quantitative/chemical parameters and limit values to more accurately define historical properties so historical and current production methods/techniques can be compared.
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.
Optimized discontinuous duplex/multi-functional coatings, combining a pulse-plasma nitriding, implantation, pvd, which boosts blanking tools performance as improved mechanical support of coatings enables them to withstand higher loads.
Ledeburitic steels prepared using the rapid solidification effect, as well as those with the addition of ceramic particles, will be developed. The coating of final steel and hard materials will be investigated.
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.
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.
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.
30% of the global production of viscose fibres is used in blends with polyester. In this project, special viscose fibres, which are more environment-friendly and intended for use in blends, will be developed to replace the standard viscose fibre.
