H2020 - FOF - 08 -2017
Coordination of LTFN
Duration: 36 months (2017-2020)

The main objectives of the SmartLine proposal are:

  • Development of robust non-destructive optical and electrical metrology tools and methodologies
  • Integration of in-line metrology tools in R2R printing and OVPD Pilot to Production Lines
  • Development of a Unique Platform for the feedback of in-line metrology tools to control the processes
  • Optimization of manufacturing processes reliability in pilot and production lines and fabrication of tailored OPV and OLEDs and demonstration to industrial applications (e.g. automotive)

"CORNET - Multiscale modelling and characterization to optimize the manufacturing processes of Organic Electronics materials and devices"

H2020 - NMBP - 07 - 2017
Coordination of LTFN
Duration: 36 months (2017-2020)

The CORNET main objectives are to:

  • Develop an effective OIE with world-class experts in Manufacturing, Multiscale Characterization & Modelling, connected to EU clusters, and create a reliable database with citable protocols with contribution to Standards
  • Multiscale Characterization & Modelling to Optimize OE nanomaterials and devices fabrication and Models Validation
  • Optimize the nano-device Manufacturing of OPVs, PPVs, OLEDs by Printing (R2R, S2S) and OVPD Processes
  • Fabricate Tailored Devices, Systems and Demonstrate to industrial applications (e.g. automotive, greenhouses)

CORNET has developed a strategic plan for the clustering activities with more than 800 existing related bodies, a Business Plan for the continuation of the OIE beyond the project and the Innovation Management, IPR and legal support services to protect generated foreground and to enable its adoption by the EU research & industrial.

"BASMATI - Bringing Innovation by Scaling up nanomaterials and inks for printing"

H2020 - NMP - PILOTS 2014
Participation of LTFN
Project Coordinator: UMICORE, Belgium
Duration: 36 months (2015)

The BASMATI project will address the development of active nanomaterial and electrochemical inks for printing technologies such as screen and inkjet printing. The ink formulations will be tested on a case study through printing of a thin film battery. The general objective of the project is to scale-up the ink formulations to pilot line ensuring large volume fabrication of new products with improved properties for printing application.
The consortium consists of 10 partners from 6 different European Countries.

"GLADIATOR - Graphene Layers: Production, Characterization and Integration"

FP7 grant agreement number 60400
Participation of LTFN
Project Coordinator: Fraunhofer COMEDD Leader
Duration: 42 months (2013)

GLADIATOR seeks to improve the quality and size of CVD graphene sheets, and to reduce their production costs, in order to make the use of graphene more attractive e.g. in applications such as transparent electrodes for large area organic electronics.
The project will achieve this by optimizing the performance of CVD graphene (using doping) increasing the throughput and size of CVD batch reactors improving the process by which graphene is transferred from the CVD catalysts to the application substrate.

Duration: 36 months

NanoReg2 will establish safe by design as a fundamental pillar in the validation of a novel manufactured material.

The NanoReg2 project, built around the challenge of coupling SbD to the regulatory process, will demonstrate and establish new principles and ideas based on data from value chain implementation studies to establish SbD as a fundamental pillar in the validation of a novel MNM. It is widely recognized by industries as well as by regulatory agencies that grouping strategies for NM are urgently needed. ECETOC has formed a task force on NM grouping and also within the OECD WPMN a group works on NM categorisation. However, so far no reliable and regulatory accepted grouping concepts could be established. Grouping concepts developed by NanoReg2 can be regarded as a major innovation therefore as guidance documents on NM grouping will not only support industries or regulatory agencies but would also strongly support commercial launch of a new NM.
