Past Projects: R&D

POLY4EMI / 2014 - 2016 / CIP

The transformative powers of biopolymers are the focus of the Poly4EmI cross-clustering collaboration since the exploitation of biopolymer technologies is opening up new business opportunities, attracting new investments, international joint ventures and partnerships and fostering the development of a globally competitive bio-based industry in Europe.

TISP / 02 2013-12 7 2015 / CIP Thematic Network

The Technology and Innovation for Smart Publishing (TISP) network aims at creating a platform for publishers and technology providers to promote wider collaboration so to make available expertise and tools on innovation and technology to publishing industry in a mutual exchange of ideas and experience between the two sectors.

SAFE-BAG / 09 2011 – 08 2014 / FP7-SME-2011 Research for the benefit of specific groups

The project SAFE-BAG Novel continuous in-pack decontamination system for fresh produce aims at developing a novel continuous in-pack decontamination system for fresh produce, that is in line with market trends and consumer demands to move away from the use of methods such as chlorine washing.

CAPINFOOD / 03 2011 – 02 2014 / Territorial Cooperation South East Europe (2nd call)

The project CAPINFOOD - Improving the enabling environment and public awareness for innovation in the South-East-European food sector through transnational cooperation aims at building the capacity of the supporting institutional framework, reducing the barriers of innovation, promoting the public awareness on benefits of innovation in the food sector and improving transnational cooperation.

Frisbee / 09 2011 – 08 2013 / FP7, Large scale integrating project

The objective of the FRISBEE (Food Refrigeration Innovations for Safety, consumers’ Benefit, Environmental impact and Energy optimisation along the cold chain in Europe) project is to provide new tools, concepts and solutions for improving refrigeration technologies along the European food cold chain.

HCHOlessWOOD / 06 2010 - 06 2012 / Cornet Era-net

At production of formaldehyde based adhesives as well as wood-based panels (WBP) in the past decades, many changes occurred, that led to significantly lower emissions. In the last years the proposed limits for the formaldehyde emission of WBP changed (e.g. Japanese standard F****, IKEA regulation IOS-MAT-0003, CARB and EPF).

REG CON / 2008 - 2010 / Regions of Knowledge, Coordination Action, FP7

The driving idea of REG CON is the advancement of the concept of “R&D based clustering” across regions of Europe with a thematic focus on construction. Over the last decade clusters and cluster initiatives have been recognized as a successful tool for economic development all over the world.
