Emerging Printed Electronics Research Infrastructure (EMERGE)

European Commission

The aim of EMERGE is to establish the first integrated, distributed research infrastructure supporting comprehensive user projects for multi-and-trans-disciplinary research on sustainable flexible large-area printed electronics and photonics (FLAPEP) value chain, going from materials formulation to design and architecture of processes, devices and systems, backup by characterization, test modelling and simulation tools, through a coordinated open-access for RTOs, industry and SMEs to complementary facilities.
This is a route for creating added value and road mapping the introduction of new, recyclable electronics products at “Half-the-time/ Half-the-cost” to establish a sustainable prosperity, as required by today’s science and technology challenges and ESFRI landscape analysis.
The overall objective of EMERGE is to provide access for users working with materials such as paper, textiles or biocompatible polymers to small-footprint FLAPEP technologies which enables emerging devices by using industrially compatible hybrid printing processes (roll-to-roll (R2R), functional 3D printing, etc.) accompanied with in-line inspection tools and automatic systems for high throughput inks determination, both driven by a novel Knowledge repository powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods. At least 1400 users will be involved in the project through cross-border experiments, while creating at least 4 Symbiotic Clusters transregional connected, 4 Innovation gateway Hubs focusing on technology brokerage and 1 transversal hub valuing the results of the prototypes within a market approach.
EMERGE will focus intensively on networking among partners and stakeholders through advocacy and dissemination, sharing data and information management and exploitation to ensure a long lasting, sustainable community in line with the Green Deal initiative for environmentally friendly approaches towards circular economy.

Deposition of Metal-Oxides and Metal-Organic Frameworks on Cellulose-based Substrates for Advanced Sustainable Composites (MOCAS)

MOCAS project

Cellulose-based composites are a low-cost, lightweight and biodegradable family of materials,that in the future may be essential for sustainable technologies, such as smart packaging and water filtering systems. In this project, we plan to deposit Metal-Oxides and Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) coatings on cellulose-based substrates using an Atmospheric Pressure Spatial Atomic Layer Deposition (AP-SALD) system.
The development of composites that combine oxides and cellulose fibers will create protective coatings in a nanostructured cellulose paper to enhance the barrier properties for water and gases transport.
Furthermore, we plan to growth MOFs on cellulose membranes to enhance the filter properties for water purification, to remove pollutants as heavy metals.
The use of the AP-SALD will guarantee a low-temperature, atmospheric pressure, and high throughput deposition process, important aspects for the future industrial implementation of these advanced sustainable composites.

Dynamic CELLulosE structures with aCTIVE colour changing for photonic and security applications (CELLECTIVE)

fct_logo-300x64

CELLECTIVE aims to demonstrate a radically new concept for CNCs-based structures with exceptional optical properties. CELLECTIVE merges different fields that go from chemical modification, materials selections and tailoring, deposition techniques, optical tunning with laser engraving, simulation and design of materials, and hydrogels for photonic and electronic applications. Moreover, CELLECTIVE will focus on dynamic natural structures with fast actuation responses, that are highly susceptible to temperature and moisture variation, turning those materials very attractive as sensing layers.
