In 2014 the European Commission published a list of 20 critical raw-materials (CRMs). Therefore, it is important to apply circular economy together with the zero-waste strategy. Waste coming from Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) contains significant amounts of Critical Raw Material (CRMs). It is one of the most important waste categories th...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Due to EU Commission publication of the 20 critical raw-material (CRMs) list in 2014, the need of applying a circular economy approach to the management of the waste coming from electric and electronic equipment (WEEE) has emerged. The struggle of achieving zero waste and resource recovery aims in the WEEE management procedures amplified the need f...

Project RECDEV* (www.recdev.eu) proposes an innovative training methodology with the use of a 3D software application in which 50 selected devices will be integrated in a 3D interactive environment. Each scenario will be depicted in such a way that extensive information about the materials contained will be displayed. Based on the “learning by acti...

Project
The weDRAW project comes from the renewed neuroscientific understanding of the role of communication between sensory modalities during development: specific sensory systems have specific roles to learn specific concepts. Starting from these results, in weDRAW we will develop an multisensory technology and three serious games that will exploit the best modality for learning arithmetic and geometrical concepts. In particular weDRAW: - will provide the elements to the teacher to determine which is the best modality (visual, audio or haptic) to teach each specific concepts to the students; - will provide the technology to exploit the best sensory signal; - will permit to teach different concepts together. This will be possible by using a multisensory approach, that will open a new teaching/learning channel, personalized for each student, based on multisensory interactive technology (i.e., audio, tactile, motor and visual), including a serious game platform. - will show that it is possible to learn arithmetical concepts from multisensory rhythm exploration and music and geometrical concepts from body movement and multisensory drawing. - will permit a “deeper learning of Science and Mathematics combined with Arts” improving creative capacities of learners. Besides application to typical children, a major goal and output of this project consists of applying the proposed multisensory approach and technologies to two specific populations: visually impaired and dyslexic children. In particular, dyslexic children have problems with rhythm, whereas visually impaired children have problems with space and geometry. With weDRAW we expect to improve the spatial and temporal impairments of these two groups of children braking down social barriers.
Project
KRAKEN will develop a disruptive hybrid manufacturing concept to equip SME and large industries with affordable All-in-one machine for the customised design, production/reparation and quality control of functional parts (made in aluminium, thermoset or both materials combined from 0,1m till 20m) through subtractive and novel additive technologies in vast working areas without floor space requirements. In KRAKEN project, new additive technologies targeting large areas using aluminium grades as well as thermoset materials will be validated at lab scale (TRL 4) and in relevant environments (TRL 5) and finally integrated and combined for the demonstration in industrial relevant environments (TRL 6). KRAKEN will collaborate to the consolidation of the Hybrid Manufacturing value chain by means of a consortium specially selected for linking research results to technological necessities in the fields of software, monitoring, automation, materials, standardization and end-users. KRAKEN machine will be devoted to the production and reparation of functional parts of any size with dimensional tolerances under 0.3 millimetres and surface roughness under Ra 0,1 µm aiming to achieve 40% reduction in time and 30 % in cost and 25% increase in productivity. KRAKEN machine will be based on hybrid approach merging MEGAROB subtractive machine (working area 20x6x3 metres) together with high efficient metallic and novel non-metallic AM. After the end of the project, KRAKEN machine will be an affordable solution (1.5M€ estimated selling price, lower than current equipment and strategies for the production of final parts) for the customised production of large size functional parts; decreasing time (40%) and cost (30%), increasing productivity (at least 25%) and with a 90 % reduction of floor space required because it uses a ceiling installation broadly extended into the whole industry
