H2020 Infusion project meeting

INFUSION - Engineering optoelectronic INterfaces: a global action intersecting FUndamental conceptS and technology implementatION of self-organized organic materials

H2020Prof. Philippe Lambin (UNamur) is organizing a meeting for INFUSION, an H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange project (H2020-MSCA-RISE-2016).

The meeting will take place at the University of Namur on 21 & 22 September 2017.

The project

Investing in energy efficiency and saving is crucial to support energy accessibility and environmental protection, and it is the world’s best interest to share and implement forms of energy efficiency.

This implies a stronger and effective transnational policy to promote and disseminate know-how about new technologies both at the market and R&D level. In this respect, development of projects centered on energy efficient technologies based on nanostructured organic materials certainly is a strategic field.

The progresses in mastering organic matter by self-assembly and self-organization to form ordered soft materials revolutionized the field opening new frontiers for both fundamental and applied research. However the route towards organic materials for application at the industrial scale is restricted by difficulties in the control and manipulation of the structural organization at the molecular level and its manifestation at higher scales.

Infusion project logoMotivated by the potential for significant energy savings, the INFUSION project aims to create a strongly interdisciplinary and inter-sectorial environment in which the principles of self-organization are poured from the Academia into the private sector and vice-versa to create new paradigms to engineer electrochromic devices.
