Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The first collection of projects represents a selection of Industrial and Materials Technologies (Brite-Euram), Standards, Measurements and Testing (SMT) and Steel projects (ECSC) which have produce some breakthroughs. These projects, funded under the Commission's 3rd Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (RTD), cover industrial consortia of the more traditional kind - industry, universities and research centres working together - as well as the CRAFT activity, groups of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) with a common technological objective undertaken on their behalf by a research centre. Many of the 50 projects included here generated a high number of publications, in some cases over 30. Patents, too, have emerged, particularly in innovative and competitive fields such as medical imaging techniques and the use of liquid crystal polymers for optical components.
