Energy COnversion in ENGINES (ECO-ENGINES)

Objective

The objective of the ECO-Engines proposal for a NoE is to set-up a Virtual Research Centre (VRC) on advanced engine combustion modes for road transport, with special emphasis on the use of alternative and renewable fuels, and to establish it as a world reference in the domain. The VRC will structure the excellence of European research on all aspects of new generations of high efficiency, low CO2 and noise, near zero emission engine combustion processes like CAI, HCCI or CCS, and other emerging high potential techniques. This will contribute to the EC objective of developing and promoting future generations of more environmental friendly powertrains and vehicle concepts for road transport, using cleaner and renewable energy sources. Addressed topics are experimental techniques (including optical diagnostics and ultra low emission measurement), combustion simulation, fuel/engine couples testing and evaluation and engine related aspects and combustion control. The VRC will result from integrating major actors' activities in the field in Europe, with the aim of durability beyond the end of EC funding. Work will lay the basis for the VRC to centrally and jointly manage knowledge, resources and research actions: set-up of a central database, internal communication via an internal web site, development of standard methodologies and procedures, exchanges of personnel, and the definition of new common high potential research actions. Emphasis will be put on the dissemination of knowledge and exploitation of results. The major action in this sense will be the set-up of a common integrated education and training programme towards students, researchers and engineers all over Europe. Other actions to spread excellence include: creation of an ECO-Engines public web site, communication of results in congresses and publications, intense collaboration and exchanges with other FP6 IPs, and specific actions towards SMEs.
