IPISA is a project in the framework of Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (topic: European SME innovation Associate - pilot). It has started in September 2017 and has duration of one year. IPISA aims at exploiting an ultra-versatile sensing scheme based on the development of high performance, low-cost, printed sensor array technology in order to fulfill the ever growing need for environmental monitoring.
It is combining the existing know-how on advanced sensing materials and inkjet material deposition, guaranteeing high throughput fabrication methods and high sensitivity and selectivity. Advanced data processing techniques will strengthen the sensing capabilities, allowing the quantitative and qualitative sensing of a wide range of gases.
A prototype device will be build which will be further developed and up-scaled in the future, targeting to be introduced in the gas sensors market. This device has a competitive advantage over expensive, micro-fabricated products addressing similar markets due to low cost, high performance, great sensitivity and simplicity in terms of applicability.
IPISA is reflected on current needs for environmental monitoring where the knowledge of the exact environmental conditions is of paramount importance such as agriculture, livestock and pisciculture. Furthermore, in the future it could be expanded in different scenarios such as the world of the enhanced safety monitoring in populated areas, as convenient detection of explosives in airports and other public places.
Thus, by combining expertise in diverge areas and by a well-defined innovation management plan, CETRI will be significantly boosted in the ever-increasing sensor market.
