EIC Pathfinder Challenge: Responsible Electronics
The overall goal of this Challenge is to create opportunities for discovery of new environmentally friendly electronic materials, thus reducing its environmental impact and the need for critical raw materials and hazardous chemicals.
The projects supported under this Challenge are expected to offer either materials with improved properties (such as flexibility, durability, end of life recyclability/reusability), materials processed with low energy consumption and low carbon footprint processing (such as printing instead of photolithography, avoiding use of fluorinated gases for patterning), or alternatives, including nano-sized ones, to replace common electronic materials such as silicon and silicon nitride.
Opening Date: 20 June 2023
Deadline date: 18 October 2023
