EMERGE Kick-off Meeting


The kick-off meeting of the EMERGE project, the first non-silicon flexible electronics infrastructure, coordinated by Professors Elvira Fortunato and Rodrigo Martins, will take place on 9 September.

The project consists of 11 partners: UNINOVA (coordinating entity), 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; AlmaScience, Portugal; Centre for Research and Technology-Hellas, Greece; RISE, Research Institutes of Sweden AB, Sweden.

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 total project budget allocated to UNINOVA is one million euros, out of a total of 6.2 M€.
