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.
Optimized discontinuous duplex/multi-functional coatings, combining a pulse-plasma nitriding, implantation, pvd, which boosts blanking tools performance as improved mechanical support of coatings enables them to withstand higher loads.
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.
Develop a system to make welders certicates more effective and improve distribution and access to the certificates through the internet. Also including information about the european welding federation education scheme.
Assisting european industry to implement the eurocodes for steel construction quickly and efficiently through the development and use of a cooperative, internet based discussion and advisory forum on best implementation practice.
Webair builds a web-based real-time multi-media information and decision support system for urban and industrial air quality assessment and management integrating on-line monitoring and modelling, in support of relevant european directives.
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.
