Imicimo will develop new materials and manufacturing technologies for microwave ferrite components: circulators and isolators that will enable for reduction of the device size, weight and cost, and will therefore facilitate their integration and packaging in mobile telecommunication equipment of the new generation.
Heavy metal monitoring device to improve the environmental safety of wastewater emissions and sewage sludge quality
PRODUCTION EFFECTIVENESS NAVIGATOR
Experimental and theoretical determination of the distribution of primary and secondary air pollutants in order to understand and predict their chemical transformation and their transport over europe.
Create methods/equipment for the treatment of organic wastes from municipalities/agriculture/industry to be converted into energy (biogas) and fertiliser. The project will be carried out in cooperation with sweden, poland and hungary.
Environmental pollution/unwanted plant-soil relationships reduce crop yield quality and quantity. This project will develop new cereal cultivars tolerant to abiotic stress and make them available for environmentally-sound agriculture.
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 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.
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.
Comprehensive logistical analysis of international cargo flows along east-west european trading corridors. Identify re-engineering opportunities in international rail services for increased attractiveness and economics.
