  EU-funded project drafts road map for electronics production

Photo of article A pan-European research project dedicated to encouraging the continued integration of the European electronics sector recently produced a road map that will help firms navigate future challenges. The road map highlights potential pitfalls players may face in coming years and drafts tenable solutions for the European electronics sector, which represents a quarter of total world production. The road map is the culmination of a three-year-long research initiative by the European Lead-free Soldering Network, or ELFNET. The network was designed as a platform to streamline communication and networking amongst stakeholders in the electronics sector to shore up long-term sustainability and ensure, among other things, compliance with strict environmental standards at European level.

  Cross-border R&D developing high-tech monitoring devices

Photo of article Sophisticated monitoring devices can be a vital tool in a wide range of applications. Tailor-made tagging systems are capable of everything from tracking the movement of cargo to counting the rpm of a single gear in a portable generator. Accurate measurements regarding the wear and tear of equipment and where exactly it's being stored can aid in the proper maintenance and increased productivity of a company's resources. Radio frequency identification (RFID) has proved to be a critical innovation in tracking technologies and two European firms, Plefo Ab of Sweden and Mannings Group in the UK, have taken notice and teamed up to develop a new low-cost efficient tagging system for precious cargo and machinery.
