Infrastructure co-operation network in area of combustion and solar energy

Objective

Description:
The main task is the running of the Infrastructure Co-operation Network to facilitate exchange of ideas and good practice amongst the members, improving and developing access to the facilities and dissemination to the community at large through the use of a Virtual Network/Internet. The technical objectives and work programmes are linked to specific study panels and can be defined as:
Study Panel 1: High Temperature Characterisation and Materials.
Comparison of techniques for characterising high temperature, suitability of new materials for instrumentation development, identification and transfer of good practice.
Study panel 2: Requirements for Research and Development.
Make proposals for future research and development in the area of combustion, solar energy and hybrid systems for the power, process and furnace technology sectors, examine and compare programmes, trends and directions of non EU countries and consider their impact in the European context.
Study panel 3: Industrial Training.
Performance of universities and their relevancy to energy intensive industry, analyse the use of the Internet for industrial training using for example Computer Aided Learning techniques, transfer of good practice and improved dissemination.
