A new cooperative r & d programme to strengthen micro- electronics in europe as the enabling technology for the whole information society, thereby strongly contributing to the creation of higher added-value and more jobs.
The aim is to provide assistance in the form of technical support and guidance and organise cooperative work groups for smes. This project will create a technical transfer network around a large european partnership.
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.
In response to car manufacturers' requests, this will use simulation techniques/experimental validation. New materials and processes will be defined to cover all the audible frequencies through a global acoustic approach to the car.
New automatic dyeing process of fabric with double 'o-ring' and on-line control by means of a spectrometer and with maximum contact between the dyeing molecules and the fabric.
In a first step, the project will compare two pultruded profiles with a thermoset and a thermoplastic resin and use these in the further development of a composite vehicle.
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.
New industrial products and technologies as well as craft skills for conservation and restoration work. Establishment of technical standards and outlines for examination and treatment of objects and monuments.
Development of a breakthrough laser cutting system for thin metal sheet replacing standard punching techniques. The foreseen development requires the achievement of very high cutting speed (up to 100 m/min) and advanced control concepts.
The development of a mobile self-erecting tower crane, which excels with high load capabilities and a high performance all-terrain base. The crane will be equipped with advanced control systems for automation and an anti-sway control system.
