Funding scheme: Research and Innovation action (RIA)

“Multiscale modelling and characterization to optimize the manufacturing processes of Organic Electronics materials and devices”

Duration (months): 36


(Active project)

Participation of OET

Project Budget: 3.998.750 €

Project Coordinator: Lab for Thin Films – Nanobiomaterials – Nanosystems – Nanometrology (LTFN), AUTh (Prof. Stergios Logothetidis)

The CORNET main objectives are to:

  1. 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
  2. Multiscale Characterization & Modelling to Optimize OE nanomaterials and devices fabrication and Models Validation
  3. Optimize the nano-device Manufacturing of OPVs, PPVs, OLEDs by Printing (R2R, S2S) and OVPD Processes
  4. 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.

The specific roles & contribution of OET in the CORNET project are to give the specifications of OE materials, devices, manufacturing processes and optimize the R2R printing and OVPD manufacturing processes of OE devices (OPV, PPV, OLED). Also, OET by its expertise on metrology will contribute in multiscale characterization and testing of OE materials, devices and systems. Finally, OET will have a key role on the implementation of OE devices in Automotive and Mediterranean Greenhouses and performance assessment.
