In addition to these running projects, there are about 45 new proposals mainly originated in Europe at various stages of development. Industrial sectors involved in the IMS projects include mechanical engineering/machinery, electrical/electronic industry, instruments, sensors, precision equipment, vehicles for land transport and building/construction.
