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.
Improved in-vitro fertilization technology using synthetic media for maturation/development and/or freezing based on components from unique immortalized gonadal cell lines which will be used to characterize/sequence potentiating factors.
Existing small tunable co2 lasers cannot use the developed technology.The main improvement parameters for this type of laser are: beam quality, power stability, pulsing, diameter- drift, trigger-delay and industrial effectiveness.
The goal of the project is to carry out research into and development of a hydrodynamic torque transmission, with a 4 to 400 kilowatt power range.
The project will develop equipment (an optical tester, an e-beam tester, a capillary coater, dry etcher), materials (substrates, liquid crystals) and production technology for the manufacture of amlcd and tft display devices.
During the production of pvc-slush moulded instrument panels much waste is generated. This research will develop a technology to process pvc waste into new processable slush compounds, thus enabling recycling in the same application.
A new digital publishing system for multimedial publication production which is essentially an object-oriented database for text/image storage, layout specifications, animation, sound, etc, enabling clients to maintain their publications.
Poultry processing lines produce over 1000 commercial end- products for many markets. New logistic models and flexible production systems for more efficient consumer response will be sought including product tracing and tracking facilities.
Study of different new processing methods on the nutritional quality of fish meal. Definition of quality characteristics. comparison with those of a wide variety of existing fish meals on world market. Validation through animal experiments
(dimensionally stable) flexible polymeric foams with densities <= 50 kg/m3 using co2 as environmentally-friendly acceptable blowing agent. Foam production: the blowing agent has to be injected into the polymer in the melt phase.
