Today’s control of industrial processes is done in a highly centralised and hierarchical manner. Future concepts like component based and collaborative automation require much more distributed control functionalities. To support this development, optimum addresses enhancing the aspects of distributed control,...
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.
This project aims to improve the mechanical properties, wear corrosion and resistance of sintered stainless steel components by careful control of processing parameters and investigating effects on the powder mixes to reduce porosity
Introduce/put into practice new, quality-oriented approaches to welding engineering via new technologies on welding engineering with novel technologies/organisation. Key areas: production automation/process control/environmental aspects.
A specialised microscope and method for fine and precise laser cleaning and spectro-microscopic analysis of fine art object surfaces; the system will contain a pulsed nd:yag laser for cleaning and a laser diode system for aiming.
The objective of this strategic project is to apply new biotechnological tools and agronomic technologies to improve the european forestry sector.
Development of a commercial prototype of an innovative cost-effective system for ultra-hard coating at high deposition rates and low temperatures using a new coating method.
The aim is to develop a new optimal catalyst for the production of high-purity bisphenol a, which is colour- stable at high temperatures. This intermediate feedstock is used to manufacture the highest grade polycarbonate resins.
The objective of this strategic project is the application of new technologies for the improvement and sustainability of the tourism, leisure and cultural industry as well increasing the european citizen's standard of life.
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.
