Overview

Aims and Objectives

The objective of the INSPIRED project is to demonstrate the synthesis and functionalization of nanomaterials for printing applications with high process throughput.

This will be achieved through development of high performance, cost effective nanomaterial formulations in a range of commercial applications in relevant industrial environments against the relevant industrial standards and end user applications.

The INSPIRED project will develop and demonstrate cost-effective, innovative high throughput synthesis and functionalisation of nanomaterials already validated in the laboratory for printed electronic systems using high volume printing techniques which surpass currently available printing technologies.

The global objective of the INSPIRED project is to demonstrate the synthesis and functionalisation of nanomaterials for printing applications with high process throughput. The project will achieve this through development of high performance, cost effective nanomaterial formulations in a range of commercial applications in relevant industrial environments against the relevant industrial standards and end user applications.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 646155 Logo EU flag yellow low ID 6241. It started in January 2015 and runs for 4 years.

Role of the BioNanoNet

The INSPIRED project has dedicated tasks in the R&D work packages which consider nanosafety of processes and regulatory aspects of nanomaterials. This is emphasised by inclusion in the consortium of BioNanoNet & NIA who are experts in nanosafety and are a participant in the NanoReg project as well as being part of the EU nanosafety cluster.

Activities: Nanosafety assessment and risk analysis both via experimental activity and modelling, for groups of products, activities, and uses of nanomaterials involved in nanoprinting technologies.
