The kick-off meeting of the EMERGE project, the first non-silicon flexible electronics infrastructure, coordinated by UNINOVA and Professors Elvira Fortunato and Rodrigo Martins, took place on September 9.
The aim of the project is to establish a research infrastructure platform in the field of flexible, hybrid and printed electronics on recyclable substrates using eco-friendly materials and processes that provides open access to research institutes and centres, SMEs and industry, related to flexible large area printed electronics and photonics (FLAPEP).
The project has the participation of 11 partners:
UNINOVA (coordinator), Portugal; Hellenic Mediterranean University, Greece; Centre for Advanced Materials and Technologies, Poland; Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH , Helmholtz; Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg for Renewable Energy, Germany; Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia, Spain; JOANNEUM RESEARCH Forschungsgesellschaft mbH, Austria; Materials Center Leoben Forschung GmbH, Áustria; Technische Universität Dresden, Germany; Centre for Research and Technology-Hellas, Greece; RISE, Research Institutes of Sweden AB, Sweden and; AlmaScience, Portugal.
This is the first EU funded project of AlmaScience.
