Research and Development Projects


The SMARTONICS Project received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research, Technological development and Demonstration, under grant agreement no. 310229.

The Project targeted the development of pilot lines that combine smart technologies with smart nanomaterials for the precision synthesis of Organic Electronic (OE) devices. The objectives of the project were:

  1. Development of smart nanomaterials
  2. Development of smart technologies
  3. Integration of the above with demonstration and evaluation for industrial applications
