Swiss companies from very diverse industries and areas of expertise are successfully working in European R&D projects.

The challenge of the DiePeR project is to apply advanced technologies for combustion and exhaust aftertreatment to existing Diesel engines. CO2 and noxious emissions are not sufficiently reduced in real driving, while higher injection pressures have led to a shift towards the emission of smaller nanoparticles that are undetected by current certification procedures. DiePeR aims to reduce emissions (more than half of emitted particles including particles < 23nm) and fuel consumption (more than 5% reduction).

The Horizon 2020 project “SCISSOR” (Security in Trusted SCADA and Smart-Grids) aims to keep such critical infrastructure as power stations and dams safe from hacking and environmental disruption.
ICT-STREAMS aims to increase server-board density and throughput by >400% & 1600% respectively, with a 10 fold reduced energy consumption. Watch also this video to learn more about the project, in English or German. (Vario-Optics AG)
