Microsystems initiative to accelerate the growth and increase the market share of european industries in innovative products and systems that use key components based on micro-technologies, materials, tools and equipment.
Cooperative r & d initiative defined to develop and exploit the strengths of the european packaging and interconnection industries in information & communication technology systems (icts) transport and component manufacturing processes.
Design, develop and test an innovative integrated system to neutralise mined areas. This system will enable the position and kind of mines used to be determined with a 99% accuracy rate.
Development of a new honeycomb sandwich core material and related process. This innovative new folded honeycomb core enables fast core production from one continuous sheet and produces reliable core-skin bonding.
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.
Collaborative industrial r&d programme dedicated to "software for software-intensive systems" that is being developed by the european information technology producers and users' industry to boost european competitiveness.
The aim is to give added value to polyamide yarns/textiles. special chemicals to be synthesized/added during spinning process.New properties will be combined by end manufacturers to enhance "push-pull" mechanism and bacteriostaticity.
The objective of this strategic project is to apply new biotechnological tools and agronomic technologies to improve the european forestry sector.
Dna will be a r&d strategic eureka factory cluster on advanced competitive and sustainable processes for relevant european manufacturing sectors. Dna will launch and clusterise several projects with special attention to sme's.
