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.
Design, manufacture and evaluation of suspension components for vehicles to evaluate the advantages of using fibre- reinforced plastics to reduce mass, integrate parts, increase durability and reduce damage to road surfaces
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 aim is to further develop the use of fibre-reinforced plastics in rail suspensions and demonstrate the advantages of advanced suspensions using such materials.
Demonstrate a novel form of hybrid electric drive line which combines the virtues of the bus and tram without the need for track or overhead lines and show how this introduces a modal shift away from the passenger car.
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.
A european network of national e-learning networks with the objective of establishing viable international e-learning projects with innovative technology and/or methodology.
Environmentally-friendly plant growth regulators and plant protection agents produced from different forest and field plant materials will be developed and evaluated for use in organic agriculture.
New bioactive nanostructured composite implant materials will be developed for human bone substitutes. Development is based on the plasma processing of ceramic nanopowders and chemical technology for the production of nanosized hydroxyapatite powders.
By incorporating new materials and more efficient production, a superior generation of high-capacity microwave radio links is developed in order to reduce existing technology costs by 50%. This next generation product targets new and emerging markets.
