CPI is contributing its state-of-the-art facilities and capabilities to a Horizon 2020 project focused on creating an open-innovation test bed for the development and production of lightweight embedded electronics.
The ‘LEE-BED’ project will run for four years with a consortium funding value of over €10 million. The aim is to de-risk and accelerate the development and manufacture of nanomaterials and lightweight embedded electronics, giving European industry a global competitive advantage as well as creating more jobs in the sector.
Digitisation of the development and manufacturing of functional nanomaterials and printed components is essential to ensure that Europe can compete with markets in the US and Asia. By overcoming challenges such as high costs and limited volume production, the LEE-BED project will provide the infrastructure necessary for the rapid development and pilot production of nanomaterials, inks, adhesives, and composites as well as digitally-enabled pilot production lines.
CPI is one of 17 partners contributing to this EU-funded Horizon 2020 project, with each partner bringing unique skills and capabilities in terms of technology innovation. In particular, CPI’s electronics and formulation capabilities will provide the project with a range of expertise in inks, adhesives and composite formulation, as well as in printable device fabrication, flexible electronics and electronic system design.
