Evaluation and development of industrial lasers for material processing
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.
Integrated computer communication network/associated server/ equipment transcending national borders using public data networks provided by european ptts to support research collaboration between universities/research organisations
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.
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.
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.
Development of materials and processes to use advanced fibre composite materials for low intrusion rehabilitation and protection of heritage structures.
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.
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.
