IAP groups is one of the 13 partners of the project INSPIRED, acronym for “INdustrial Scale Production of Innovative nanomateRials for printEd Devices”, which is funded within the HORIZON 2020 EU research and innovation programme.
Information on the INSPIRED project and updates on developments can be found at the dedicated website: www.nano-inspired.eu
The focus of the INSPIRED project is to fundamentally improve the current understanding of Printed Electronics (PE). PE is set to revolutionise the electronics industry over the next decade and can offer Europe the opportunity to regain lost market share. It allows for the direct printing of a range of functional (conducting, semi-conducting and dielectric) nanomaterials formulations to enable a simpler, more cost-effective, high performance and high volume processing in comparison to traditional printed circuit board and semiconductor manufacturing techniques. Presently, there are issues with industrial supply of nanomaterials which are low cost, high performance, environmentally friendly and tailored for high throughput systems.
The INSPIRED project will address these fundamental issues within the printed electronics industry by ensuring that suitable functional nanomaterials formulations (inks) are available for end users in industrial scale quantities.
The global objective of the INSPIRED project is to demonstrate the synthesis and functionalisation of nanomaterials for printing applications with high process throughput. This will be achieved through development of high performance, cost-effective nanomaterial formulations in a range of commercial applications in relevant industrial environments against free web cam porn posting the relevant industrial standards and end user applications.
