The strategic aim is to increase european manufacturing competitiveness by providing an application-oriented, bottom-up, collaborative r&d support mechanism primarily focused on 'new added value products and related services'&'innovative production processes and systems'.
Itea 3 is the follow-up of the successful eureka clusters itea and itea 2. Itea 3 is essential to secure and enhance the position of european industry in software-intensive systems and services.
Euripides2 will cover the electronic systems integration value chain, from materials, equipment and technologies, through components, modules, up to embedded, mechatronics, enmeshed and implanted systems.
The project aims the development of generic purification procedures to obtain endotoxin standards, the development of analytical test kits to quantify endotoxins in liquid formulations and the development of endotoxin specific filter materials to purify liquid formulations from endotoxins.
Respro will develop novel approaches to reduce/eliminate traces of toxic anti-sprouting molecules currently used in the potato value chain. Respro strategies are based on: 1) epigenetics, 3) assessment of a new non toxic sprouting inhibitor, 2) combination of pre- and post-harvest treatment.
Penta is a new eureka cluster in micro- and nano-electronics that will support the vision, strategy and planned implementation contained in the european industrial strategic roadmap for micro- and nano-electronic components and systems as prepared by the electronic leaders group.
To advance the current paradigm of the (vibro-)acoustic simulation tools from the "specialist engineering" position to the "generalist engineering" position, therefore tackle a considerably larger market.
