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.
The eradication of leather/hide grain defects, light (white) spots & flecks through the introduction of practical control programmes for cattle ectoparasites in national herds with minimum impact on the environment.
Comprehensive approach to the continuous improvement of the environmental performance of electronic products over their whole life-cycle, including aspects such as recycling, etc.
Food industry lubricants are normally based on mineral oils which are hazardous if they contaminate food and non bio- degradable when spilled on waste. This project will produce a line of products based on vegetable oils for the uk market
Research, quantify and qualify tpm-practising companies. development of a method to be tested by other companies especially smes. Project deliverables will define the parameters/steps/measurement criteria for european standard.
Development and exploitation of technology based on electro- magnetic isochoric plasma heating. As a first application a reactor for combined scrubbing/pumping of hazardous gases used in the microelectronics industry will be developed.
Research and dissemination of best practice in continuous improvement via a coordinated pan-european network group. new tools and methods will be developed as necessary and relevant.
Feasibility study to anticipate future needs of slaughter- houses and consumers both in quality, hygiene, environment and costs. This should lead to a new set of parameters for the total poultry process and encourage further research.
Will build upon existing leads to identify proteinase inhibitors which control nematode development in the sugar beet nematode.The best genes will be cloned/sequenced and expressed in crop plant roots to demonstrate in-vivo effect.
