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.
The aim of the project is to develop multi-operational rotor die-forming technology and suitable equipment, combining compacting, sintering, coining, retreating and control for production of precision parts from powder materials.
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.
The objective of this strategic project is to apply new biotechnological tools and agronomic technologies to improve the european forestry sector.
Determination of the environmental footprint of a vehicle and relation of this to the economic and social costs of maintaining the infrastructure.
Study to develop/commercially validate an inter-modal system for trans-european freight transfer between nordic region and s.E. Europe whose central building block will be a "blue shuttle train" connecting two inter-modal centres.
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.
Development of manufacturing technology for a new generation of tools coated by chemical vapour deposition system to increase their service life and strength.
There are two main challenges: 1. To become sustainable by reducing resource consumption, managing transport and utility networks in a sustainable way, reducing environmental and man-made impacts, improving safety and security and protecting cultural heritage; 2. To become a demand-driven sector.
