The FET-Open HyPhOE project: coordinated by the Dr. Eleni Stavrinidou (Assistant Professor at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics (LOE), Linköping University, Sweden.
In HyPhOE we will explore a revolutionary approach to electronic materials and devices based on the use of plants, algae and bacteria. This is a radically pioneering investigation, generated by the original intuition of using plants and photosynthetic organisms in conjunction with tailored organic materials and electronic devices to develop completely new approaches to many important technologies. The bio-hybrid systems conceived in HyPhOE will target three key applications:
1. Energy systems based on electronically-functionalized plants and photosynthetic microorganisms;
2. Plants growth control and optimization using electronics;
3. Environmental monitoring using functionalized plants.
Our team will contribute in the conception, design and production of innovative electronic materials addressing the above three applications.
