Technologies for environmental sensors for air quality: with the growing demand for sensor technologies and the potential of semiconductor technologies for this application area the project esairq targets to further develop essential technologies for gas sensing with research for selective, sensitive and reliable...
The overall objective is to provide the european structural steelwork industry with the means to overhaul itself by introducing purpose-developed, computer integrated manufacturing (cim) systems.
Objective: the aim is to generate sub-projects developing high technology products, processes, systems or services contributing to solving some of europe's major environmental problems.
Flexible communication network in the field of industrial production systems integrated in company operations to develop competitiveness in mfg. Methods/design, mfg.Systems/ technology and organisation/human resource development.
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.
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.
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 objective of this strategic project is to apply new biotechnological tools and agronomic technologies to improve the european forestry sector.
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.
