E2SG: “Energy to Smart Grid”
Coordinator: Ing. Holger Schmidt (Infineon Technologies, DE)
Duration: 01/04/2012 - 30/09/2015
Funding: €. 5.683.000 (IU.NET share €. 617.000)
IU.NET units involved: University of Bologna, Pisa, Udine. The internal scientific director is Prof. Alberto Borghetti.
The project involves the design of methodologies for assembling,
monitoring and controlling intelligent electrical networks, known as
"smart grids", whose function is to generate, exchange and use
renewable electricity in the most efficient and reliable way. The
project involves 36 industrial and research entities, with a total
allocation of 1,021 months person.
Lab4MEMS: “LAB FAB for Smart Sensors and Actuators MEMS”
Coordinator: Roberto Zafalon (ST Microelectronics)
Duration: 01/01/2013 - 31/12/2015
Funding: €. 12.890.000 (IU.NET share €. 639.000)
IU.NET units involved: Politecnico di Milano, University of Bologna and Pisa.
The internal scientific director is Prof. Andrea Lacaita.
aim of the project is to implant a pilot line as well as to develop
innovative technologies for piezoelectric and magnetic materials for
the manufacture of sensors and actuators, micro pumps, energy
scavengers and, finally, packaging for the juxtaposition of
interconnected chips through passages, known as "through silicon vias".
20 industrial and research organizations are participating in the
project, with a total allocation of 1,710 months-person.
E2COGaN: “Energy-Efficient Converters using GaN Power Devices”
Coordinator: Ing. Frederik Deleu (ON Semiconductor, BE)
Duration: 01/04/2013 - 31/12/2016
Funding: €. 5.683.000 (IU.NET share €. 375.000)
IU.NET units involved:
UUniversity of Padua, Bologna, Calabria, Modena and Reggio Emilia. The
internal scientific director is Prof. Gaudenzio Meneghesso.
The aim of the project is to develop a GaN-based Ga technology based on
high-voltage power transistors and HEMT for high-frequency
applications. The activities will cover the whole value chain, from the
conception, simulation and design of the devices, to the realization of
demonstrators of high relevance for industrial, social and
environmental applications. The project involves 25 industrial and
research organizations, with a total allocation of 1,909
Lab4MEMs II: “Micro-Optical MEMs, micro-mirrors and pico-projectors”
Coordinator: Roberto Zafalon (STM)
Duration: 01/11/2014 - 31/10/2017
Funding: IU.NET share €. 299.000
IU.NET units invloved: University of Pisa, Bologna, Modena and Reggio Emilia, Calabria. The internal scientific director is Prof. Giuseppe Iannaccone.
The project's objective is to implant a pilot line for
Micro-Opto-Electro-Mechanical (MOEMS) technologies, as well as the
development of orientable mirror projection systems. 20 industrial and
research organizations are participating in the project, with a total
allocation of 1,541 months-per-person.
