We are pleased to announce the partnership with 1D-NEON, a 4 year Innovation Action of the H2020 work program funded by the European Commission under the NMP-22 2015 call topic “Fiber-based materials for non-clothing applications”.

The vision of the 1D-NEON project is to create outstanding added value for the textile manufacturing industry. This will be accomplished by developing fibre-based smart materials along with an integrated technology platform for the manufacturing in Europe of new products enabling applications in sensing, lighting, energy and electronics.

1D-NEON is organized in 8 Work Packages (we are leaders of one of them) covering materials, components, manufacturing processes, pilot-applications, modelling/simulation, safety & standardization. Being such an innovative project, dissemination and IPR exploitation are also highly relevant.
