Finland’s EU-presidency, bringing impact to EU Innovation Funding?11 Apr 2019
Finland begins its third EU presidency on 1 July 2019. Leading up to the presidency, both private and public...
A two-and-a-half-day summer school on smart system integration given by smart-MEMPHIS project consortium, invited speakers and Malta University.
The participation is free of charge but registration is obligatory.
The smart-MEMPHIS EU project combines the expertise of nine European companies, universities and research institutes to create new generation pacemakers and condition monitoring sensors. The goal is to tackle the challenge of self-powering electronics. The project aims to design, manufacture and test a miniaturized autonomous energy supply based on harvesting vibrational energy with energy harvesters. The project will integrate several multi-functional technologies and nanomaterials; a MEMS-based energy harvester, ultra-low-power electronics to manage the harvested power, and a miniaturized energy storing supercapacitor, all integrated for cost effective 3D integration. The energy harvesting device will be demonstrated in two very demanding and different applications: a leadless pacemaker and a wireless sensor network for structural health monitoring of airplane wings.
