INANOTOOL APPROACH The objective of i-NanoTool is to contribute to the efficient implantation of the environmental policy and legislation in nanomaterials manufacturers companies, especially SMEs. It includes the development of an interactive platform (etool) for environmental self-diagnosis addressed to nanoparticles manufacturers in European countries. Its specific objectives are: • To [...]
Risk management is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks.
The results of the project AIRCRAFTFIRE have different expected impacts on fire safety in aeronautics. The impacts follow the work programme performed by the AIRCRAFTFIRE consortium. AIRCRAFTFIRE will mainly: - evaluate the new fire threat induced by the massive use of composites in aeronautics; - provide flammability, toxicity and burning [...]
This report summarises the experiences made and lessons learned within the seven E2ReBuild projects in view of collaboration and action chains. Impacts and conclusions concerning the design and construction process, the communication management, the participation, the claim and time management, the work-flow on-site, the Health & Safety management, the relationship [...]
Floods, together with wind related storms, are considered the major natural hazard in the European Union (EU) in terms of risk to people and assets. Currently, more than EUR 40 bn per year are spent on flood mitigation and recovery (including compensation of flood damage) in the EU. More than [...]
The Traffic Safety policy area deals with the protection of ships and of their passengers. Highly crowded maritime areas and sensitive routes need to be monitored in order to: • Prevent death, injury and damages resulting from both ship collisions; • Prevent damages resulting from environmental hazards; • Implement countermeasures [...]
Maps of forest vulnerability indexes to biotic forest damages. Information about sufficiency of existing forest health monitoring network for reliable damage prediction.
Expected results for Component I (Territorial planning with biodiversity concerns incorporated through active involvement of key economic sectors): • Information is available about the level of knowledge and acceptance of the 4 target groups (agriculture, forestry, water and game management); data are from the evaluation of at least 120 questionnaires [...]
First of all it has been appointed the project Committee and the Scientific Board composed by representative of European universities and institution operating for the Urban Forestry. Afterwards, a network among regional, national and European stakeholders was established through the creation of an User Committee. At the same time two [...]
The passenger behaviour and movement simulations have been applied to the SECURESTATION model station and have been used to identify where the original design did not provide adequate emergency exits or where other elements of the design would allow safe egress in the required time. As a result of the [...]
The result of this work has been data which can be fed into the SECURESTATION risk assessment methodology giving quantitive data for human harm and these models allow different fire and smoke suppression systems to be compared for cost benefit analyses to be carried out.
