FAST and Nano-Enabled SMART Materials, Structures and Systems for Energy Harvesting

The project overall concept is centred on scaling up of novel, mass-production nano-manufacturing techniques invented by FAST-SMART partners for synthesis of nano-structured smart materials and component manufacture for energy harvesting applications to significantly improve the material quality and structural reliability (>50%~100%) and reduce overall materials and processing costs (by 30%) through shortening the process chains and improving material processing efficiency, being focused on less rare-element dependence materials as well as on new energy harvester designs considering environmental strategy, thus to bring about positive, environment-related impacts to Europe (greenhouse gas emission down by 50% and waste reduction by 50%), increased EU’s market share, and to promote wider implementation of Internet of Things (IoT) and Digital Single Market (DSM) in Europe, due to introduction of the new energy harvesting products, design and manufacturing services created through the FAST-SMART’s partnership.
