The Commission of the European Communities, in the context of the Third Framework Programme, issues a second call for proposals for the specific programme of research and technological development in the field of industrial and materials technologies 1990-1994 (BRITE/EURAM II). The call concerns Areas 1 and 2 as outlined in the workprogramme: Area I. Materials and raw materials: - Raw materials: Exploration technology; mining technology; mineral processing. - Recycling: Recycling and recovery of industrial waste including non ferrous metals; recycling, recovery and reuse of advanced materials. - Structural materials: Metals and metal matrix composites; ceramics, ceramic matrix composites and advanced glasses; polymers and polymer matrix composites. - Functional materials for magnetic, superconducting, optical, electrical and biomaterial applications: Magnetic materials; high temperature superconducting materials; electrical and ionic conducting materials; optical materials; biomaterials. - Mass commodity materials: Packaging materials; new construction industry materials. Area II. Design and manufacturing: - Design of products and processes: Innovative design tools and techniques; design methodologies for complex components, maintainability and reliability. - Manufacturing: Tools, techniques and systems for high quality manufacturing; manufacturing techniques for industrial use of advanced materials; integrated approach to chemical and process engineering. - Engineering and management strategies for the whole product lifecycle: Design integrating strategies; engineering; human factors in engineering and manufacturing management. The above research areas and topics will be addressed, in general, in shared-cost research and technology development projects. Projects which are complementary around one specific objective and covering different technologies of the programme will be coordinated as a targeted research action. In addition, there will be topics which are to be undertaken as accompanying measures. Certain activities will be of interest to small and medium enterprises. Detailed information about procedures for the submission of proposals plus background material on the research topics is available from: Commission of the European Communities Reference BRITE/EURAM Call for Proposals DG XII, Directorate C 75 rue Montoyer B-1040 Brussels Tel. +32-2-2952345; Telex COMEU B 21877; Fax +32-2-2958046
