Ecobogie is a novel bogie that will deliver environmental benefits for freight vehicles by decreasing noise emissions by at least 10 db and reducing mass by up to 1000 kg per bogie thus reducing the carbon foot print and track damage and increasing the capacity of existing rail infrastructure
New industrial products and technologies as well as craft skills for conservation and restoration work. Establishment of technical standards and guidelines for examination and treatment of objects and monuments.
Investigation of corrosion processes of different copper alloys according to certain environments, and develop special conservation therapies. (Outdoor bronze monuments selected).
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.
The aims of eurosilva are to advance knowledge on stress and disease phenomena, forest decline, defence mechanisms, normal functioning in healthy trees and to promote forest productivity with respect to quantity and quality of wood.
Throat cancer often results in removing the larynx (with vocal folds and epiglottis). To restore the larynx function, an implantable artificial larynx will be developed with a voice-restoring device/epiglottis allowing normal speaking.
Development of thin-film coatings for integrated optics grating couplers in order to enhance their sensitivity, selectivity and speed of response for sensing applications in medicine.
New uses for environmentally beneficial moulding material binders (alkali silicate basis) for the foundry industry with optimal properties for moulding material preparation and used moulding material regeneration/recycling.
Development and arrangement of flexible product and process- oriented organisational structures in the mould making industry assisted by an integrated information system based on the total quality management concept.
