Design,analysis,engineering,protobuild,testing of mid class passenger car, aiming at 40% reduction on co2-emission in the car's lifecycle. Main objectives: lightweight body structure and efficient, clean driveline.
To improve pan-european computer networks for researchers by introducing advanced network technologies (at 34 mbit/s and and beyond)/applications; improving the quality of services and establishing an appropriate management environment.
The aim is to develop and introduce the sophisticated, phased construction process; programming, integrated design including life cycle estimating,an open construction process based on the use of the product model technology.
New coating techniques where highly corrosion-resistant materials are required.With new hvof-technique/automation of mobile equipment and new coating feedstocks of gas atomised powders,corrosion-resistant coatings>applied/checked on site
Comprehensive approach to the continuous improvement of the environmental performance of electronic products over their whole life-cycle, including aspects such as recycling, etc.
The project aim is to develop automated non-destructive sterility test systems for practical use in the food industry.
Research and dissemination of best practice in continuous improvement via a coordinated pan-european network group. new tools and methods will be developed as necessary and relevant.
Feasibility study to anticipate future needs of slaughter- houses and consumers both in quality, hygiene, environment and costs. This should lead to a new set of parameters for the total poultry process and encourage further research.
During the production of pvc-slush moulded instrument panels much waste is generated. This research will develop a technology to process pvc waste into new processable slush compounds, thus enabling recycling in the same application.
Food and fibre agroindustry extruder technology progress is hindered by high equipment costs,high energy consumption and low capacities (tons per unit). There is a need for simple, high input equipment for biopolymer extrusion.
