    A hybrid Press Conference (on-line & live) organized by LTFN took place today at Porto Palace Hotel (NANOTEXNOLOGY 2021 venue).

    LTFN publicly presented the successful conclusion of Η2020 EC Projects Smartline and CORNET and reported the progress and innovations of the running H2020 projects, RealNano, FF2S, Musicode, nanoMECommons).

    The NANOTEXNOLOGY2021 events ISFOE21, NN21, I3D21 ,ISSON21 & EXPO21 that will take place on 3-10 July (on-line & live), were also announced.

    The project partners OET and BL Nanobiomed presented their innovative products that will be exhibited to EXPO21.

    A large number of representatives from the national and local government as well as collaborating industrial entities from Greece and Europe (e.g. Centro Ricerche Fiat, Coatema, etc) participated and interacted with the media representatives during the event.

    RealNano is an ambitious project funded by Horizon2020 EU’s new research and innovation programme, that will play a major role in the Digital Transformation of the EU industries since it will increase the intelligence of manufacturing processes for of Organic Electronics (OEs) and other industrial applications by demonstrating a yield improvement up to 90%, in combination to above 30% reduction on wastes and resources for nanomaterials upscaling. The project’s innovations will boost the reliability, efficiency and cost-effectiveness of OE manufacturing processes, to develop nanomaterials, devices and products with a return of investment less than 5 years.

    The OEs market continues to grow rapidly and revolutionizes many industrial applications in Green Energy, Lighting, Smart Buildings, Smart Cities, Lighting, Automotive etc, through OPVs, OLEDs, Printed Biosensors, Flexible Batteries leading to a Digital, Green Deal and Circular Economy. Nevertheless, the current OEs industrial manufacturing processes cannot meet the increased commercialization demands on manufacturing speed, materials quality, reliability, efficiency and stability as well as to reduce the amount of waste produced during manufacturing processes. It is due to the lack of robust nanoscale analytical tools that could offer quality control and a cost-effectives manufacturing methods, accelerating the entrance of advanced products in the market.

    The RealNano scope’s is to solve the above problems offering many advantages to the Digital industry! The project will develop novel and fast real-time nano-characterization materials tools & methodologies based on Spectroscopic Ellipsometry, Raman Spectroscopy, Imaging Photoluminescence and Laser Beam Induced Current Mapping that will be integrated to in-line R2R (Roll-to-Roll) Printing and OVPD (Organic Vapor Phase Deposition) Pilot-to-Production Lines (PPLs) for characterization of Organic & Printed Electronics nano- materials, layers, devices, process and products during their manufacturing for improvement of quality and reliability of the final products. Lastly, RealNano will transfer the results to the industry by Open Innovation (Dissemination, Training, Networking and Clustering) and Management to inform the stakeholders how to contribute and be benefited by the project’s innovations.

    The Consortium with 10 partner organizations is led by the Nanotechnology Lab LTFN of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece) and is well-balanced in terms of involvement of industrial and SME partners: Organic Electronics Technologies P.C. (Greece), SEMILAB (Hungary), Granta Design (UK), Coatema Coating Machinery GmbH (Germany), Centro Ricerche Fiat SCPA (Italy), Hellenic Organic & Printed Electronics Association (Greece), APEVA (Germany), InfinityPV (Denmark), BL NanoBioMed (Greece). The project has a duration of 36 months (1 March 2020 – 28 February 2023) and is funded 100% from the EU with a total budget of 4.9 Million Euros.
