Smartonics is a Large Scale Integrating R&D Project funded by the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (NMP.2012.1.4-1 Pilot lines for precision synthesis of nanomaterials).

Smartonics consortium consisted of 18 European partners (Universities, Companies and Organisations).  The partners cover the fields of nanomaterials & process development and optimization (AUTh, POLO, UOP, UOI, UOXF, USUR, CNRS, USTUTT, HZB, Advent, OL), precision sensing and fabrication tools (HJY, AUTh, OL, COM, OET), industrial processes (COA, AIXTRON) and manufacturing of commercial products (FIAT with CRF).

The target of the Smartonics project was the development of Pilot lines that will combine smart technologies with smart nanomaterials for the precision synthesis of Organic Electronic (OE) devices.

During the press conference, the project's achievements were announced to public and media, while 6 greek project partners (from research, academia and industry) commented on the project's results and future perspectives.
