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
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.
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.
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.
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.
The main objective is to provide scientific and technological support, and general technical assistance to european smes wishing to integrate micro and nano technology into their products. Non-european countries will also be made aware of minatuse activities.
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.
Pro-factory is a european network that aims to bring forward and coordinate applications-oriented, bottom-up, collaborative r&d projects in production and robotics for greater competitiveness and sustainability.
