Research

Our current research investigates organic low-cost electronic devices which can be printed on flexible substrates and easily scaled up.

One of the main objective of the latest project (HEROIC) is to develop a new concept of organic transistor: a device which can be printed on any surface for a new generation of a low energy consumption electronics, powered by renewable sources with little or no impact on the environment.

Technological applications of those kind of devices could bring the manufacture within the city, because 'do not require large facilities and heavy infrastructure, typical of the traditional manufacturing process line.  This "electronic 2.0" also called "organic" already opened up many routes like smart tag for the packaging of food or for the traceability of products, clothing with non-invasive integrated electronics for monitoring of vital signs and flexible tablet displays.strip for research
