INNPAPER is a pioneering project in the printed electronics field, that is designing a configurable and recyclable electronic platform based on paper. The project aims to foster the industrial application of paper-based electronics, contributing to reduce the e-waste.

An innovation project to design a configurable circuit board, using paper as the main material. INNPAPER project aims at providing a configurable & recyclable common platform integrating a variety of paper-based electronic devices on a multifunctional paper sheet, which will enable the subsequent production of multiple use-cases.

How we reached the goals

By 2021 the project will develop three devices that will show the wide range of applications of this technology: smart labels to measure temperature, humidity, and pressure, to monitor the preservation of food products; drug detection devices for cannabis in saliva and caffeine in liquids; and diagnostic devices for influenza virus and streptococcus A bacteria, which causes amygdalitis. Spinverse will contribute to the development of the exploitation, dissemination and business plans for the technology.

Key takeaways

The expected result of the project is to demonstrate the feasibility of the paper-based common electronic platform, where the paper is used both as the substrate and as active component, through the development of real use cases (smart labels and PoC bio-platforms).
