ENHANCE (Piezoelectric Energy Harvesters for Self-Powered Automotive Sensors: from Advanced Lead-Free Materials to Smart Systems)
EpiValence is proud to be part of a new European project aimed at new advanced materials integration into automotive applications to improve performance and sustainability. This exciting new International Training Network starts in May 2017 and runs for 4 years to provide Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) with broad and intensive training within a multidisciplinary research and teaching environment. Key training topics will include development of energy harvesters compatible with MEMS technology and able to power wireless sensor. Other important topics include technology innovation, education and intellectual asset management.
ENHANCE links world-leading research groups at academic institutions to give a combined, integrated approach of synthesis/fabrication, characterization, modeling/theory linked to concepts for materials integration in devices and systems.
EpiValence will provide expertise and training in the area of precursor development – from molecular design to full scale production – to enhance scientific proficiency and chemical processing techniques are transferred to young scientists as skills to progress their future careers. In addition we will be working on new chemicals to support the researchers – for more details see our web page
