A new award for European project “Light-Rolls”
Light-Rolls project, coordinated by PRODINTEC Technology Centre, was shortlisted for the Best Completed Project Award by Industrial Technologies 2014 Scientific Committee between more than 1,000 candidates.
The Industrial Technologies 2014 conference integrated nanotechnology, biotechnology, advanced materials and new production technologies. The event offered opportunities for developing valuable research and industry collaborations, and showcases cutting-edge research, latest innovations and rising companies from all around Europe.
Best Project Awards for both completed and on-going projects, were given out during the Gala Dinner held on 10th April in Piraeus.
Innovative manufacturing technology
Light-Rolls is a novel manufacturing technology pilot line, integrating highly innovative production modules, based on a roll-to-roll manufacturing concept (process of creating electronic devices on a roll of flexible plastic or metal foil) for the seamless, high throughput manufacture of micro-structured systems.
The potential impact of such a project is very large and is related to domains as diverse as technology, markets (consumer, bio, health...) and societal issues. More generally, Light-Rolls is believed to enable Europe to be a step ahead of leading competitors in the field of micro-manufacturing and its various applications. This will definitely be an important step to increase European competitiveness in KETs such as Advanced Manufacturing, Photonics, Information and Communication Technologies and Nanotechnology to achieve world class performance in research and innovation.
