EELICON will tackle drawbacks of the existing technology by overcoming equipment limitations, using process automation, and establishing a high-throughput prototype production for flexible and retrofit-enabling light modulation films in Europe.
The innovation is planned to be accomplished in three development steps, joining efforts of European and overseas players to integrate nanotechnology, materials, and production know-how, thereby utilising cost-effective processing options. The project comprises a pilot-line, a validation, and a prototyping phase (incl. business planning and scouting activities). It fully complies with the objectives of NMP Activity 4.4 - Integration and call NMP.2013.4.0-3 - From research to innovation: Previously obtained research results are used by industry, the European paradox is relieved, the valley of death is overcome by following three pillars of development eventually resulting in creation of new businesses in Europe.
