XERIC is transdisciplinary
A transdisciplinary approach is paramount to reach XERIC’s objective. XERIC’s partners are not juxtaposing their expertise, they are transcending their own disciplines to grasp each other’s work, capture complexity and create new intellectual and material know-how.
Partners contribute their unique expertise and also work outside their discipline to understand and contribute to the project’s objective.
• FRIGOMAR has to understand the problems linked with the use of the three-fluids-combined-membrane-contactor (aging, regeneration of desiccant, process variables);
• TICASS alters its academic-specific approach to accommodate industrial needs in terms of material properties and industrial manufacturing platforms;
• GVS, UDE and VITO share resources and integrate their know-how to achieve the common goal of developing a specific hydrophobic membrane;
• ITWM crosses its industrial boundaries to lead the work of TICASS and GVS towards the development of a climate control system that will answer market needs.

What do they say about XERIC?
XERIC & the Environment
"I particularly like the idea that we contribute to a project driven by industry, and the outcome of which may have a positive environmental and societal impact."
Dr. Sabine PAULUSSEN - VITO, Belgium
A Sound Concept
"The concept behind XERIC is valid and will guarantee a step forward towards the reduction of energy consumption for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning systems."
Extract from the report of a European Commission’s evaluator
A Challenging Project!
"Our ambition is to develop an air conditioning system that can save energy and can also fit in small electric vehicles: that’s definitely challenging! All people involved, employed by different companies, universities, and research centers, carry out the work in a transdisciplinary way to reach our common objective: the resulting synergy is a thrilling approach."
Nino GAETA, XERIC's Coordinator - GVS, Italy
