About the InSCOPE project  

 

 

The project titled InSCOPE, has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, and aims to create an open access pilot line service for Hybrid & Printed systems. Allow faster transition of product concept from R&D to product and support the build of manufacturing capacity will also give a great chance for SMEs to enter the market with THIN, ORGANIC and LARGE AREA ELECTRONICS enabled products.

 

 

 

VISION 

Become the leading Hybrid Printed electronics development service worldwide that create sufficient market traction to allow self-sustaining operation.

 

 

MISSION

Providing a comprehensive complementary toolbox for Hybrid Printed Electronics manufacturing processes. Set up service infrastructure for hybrid Printed Electronics enable a service of 15 development cases during the project. Demonstrate the commercial viability- present 4 Showcases that will show Hybrid printed electronics capabilities in large volume markets.

PROJECT OBJECTIVE

 

The InSCOPE project will set-up an open access pilot line service for Hybrid TOLAE (H-TOLAE) technologies capable of sampling products at TRL6-7. It positions itself in between R&D and industry and deploys a service for validating potential H-TOLAE products.Manufacturing progresses beyond R&D level (TRL5 towards 6) by improving processes, functionality, and reliability allowing sampling at high quality and in relevant numbers needed for industrial qualification (TRL 6-7). After InSCOPE, the Pilot line service will remain accessible to interested parties. The pilot line is serviced by top European RTD’s with leading technological positions and state of the art equipment in the domain of H-TOLAE. It will accelerate the uptake of H-TOLAE technology by delivering a public handbook describing functionalities, production guidelines and design rules of H-TOLAE, including new opportunities for “traditional” electronics. Validation of the pilot line service by 4 Showcases and 15 development cases are included within the project. The Showcases consist of H-TOLAE product prototypes at TRL 5 to be matured on functionality and on manufacturability. The showcases will steer the pilot line improvement. They are selected based on their economic impact as well as the technological status of the product and production in Europe. The development cases are devoted to new functionalities enabled by H-TOLAE. They are aimed at SME’s interested in exploring the broad advantages H-TOLAE.
