ALLIANCE project posted this Technology CallSeeking innovative material and manufacturing technologies to enable cost-efficient lightweighting in high-volume automotive applicationsThe ALLIANCE partners are giving the opportunity to large and small companies, research centres, universities, and even individuals with innovative lightweighting technologies, to submit their ideas, co-develop them with the OEMs, suppliers, and knowledge partners of ALLIANCE, and shape the vehicles of tomorrow. Do you have a specific idea or concept (material or manufacturing) on how to achieve lightweighting in vehicles? Does your technology show potential to reduce the GWP impact in a life-cycle perspective? Is it affordable? Can it be implemented in high-volume vehicle production? Win the opportunity to co-develop your innovations with six leading automotive OEMs (Daimler, Opel, Toyota, Volvo, Volkswagen, CRF - the Research Centre of FCA) and four suppliers (ThyssenKrupp, Novelis, Batz, Benteler). The winning technologies will be implemented on existing vehicle parts and presented at a dedicated side event of the Aachen Body Engineering Days 2018! The ALLIANCE project is co-funded by the European Commission’s H2020 programme.
Haier posted this Technology CallSeeking for technologies to reduce frozen meat gravy lossFor current refrigerators, meat and frozen foods are stored under low temperatures (-18℃) for longer preservation. However, after certain period, due to temperature fluctuation (caused by the on-and-off actions of the compressor and defrost, etc.) and sweeping of cold air flow (in air cooled refrigerators), frozen meat may lose water. For example, water on meat surface is removed and food cell is pierced through by ice crystals. Once the meat is thawed, there will be a large amount blood and the meat will taste hard or bad. This will have negative impact on meat quality. To further improve frozen food quality, we are now seeking for a new solution that could be applied on refrigerator products.
