SYMPHONY

aims to develop a cost-efficient and environmentally friendly realization of energy harvesting.

What We Do

The SYMPHONY project is addressing the 21st century challenges concerning the spread of electronic systems in remote locations requiring a change in power generation. Current IoT scenarios expect around 75 billion connected devices by 2025, and the powering of these devices by batteries will result in a considerable amount of potentially hazardous waste. The project consortium aims to develop cost effective and scalable methods to print energy harvesting materials on flexible films and to combine them with energy efficient electronics and sensor technologies.

SYMPHONY in a nutshell

SYMPHONY makes use of dislocated and disordered energy sources with the development of an innovative energy autonomous sensor system. 

News & Events

Be part the SYMPHONY community. Look for project and partner news and future events.

Motivation & Impact

SYMPHONY will contribute significantly to acceleration of future low-carbon competitive economy. The project delivers an energy supply platform for the powering of wireless sensors/sensor nodes for monitoring remote or difficult-to-access locations.

Application Opportunities

SYMPHONY adresses three use cases to validate the impact of its new energy harvestig materials: wind turbines, bicycle tubes and smart floors

Technologies

SYMPHONY aims to develop cost-efficient self-powered flexible sensors and printed batteries by using smart printing technologies

Partners and Stakeholders

The project includes 13 top EU innovation performers (researchers and companies) from 4 European countries.
