Novel Sensors

The project concerns flexible materials in the form of high added value smart fabrics/textiles which are able to sense stimuli and react or adapt to them in a predetermined way. The project will exploit screen and inkjet printing together with microfabrication based strategies to achieve functionality. This will result in a low-cost, easy to design, flexible, rapid way to manufacture multi function smart textiles for a large set of multi-sectorial applications.
