The European project „HyPELignum“ under the coordination of RISE (SWE) focusses on the development of printed electronics on wood and wood-based materials. Use-cases considered involve the replacement printed circuit boards (PCBs) by wood-based alternatives as well as sensorized furniture and timber construction elements. Another topic of this project is the development of an innovative wood preservation concept, that can be activated on the push of a button only when needed. An essential part of the project is the recycling of the developed products. Hence, appropriate recycling concepts will be developed right from the start of the project.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon Europe research and innovation program under grant agreement No 101070302 and from the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI).
