What is SMILE ?

The University of Bordeaux and four industrial partners - ARKEMA, ISORG, SURYS and VALEO - are joining forces to leverage the exquisite functional properties of electroactive polymers in the field of Printed Ferrotronics Engineering, i.e., the association of electronic and ferroelectric organic materials into dedicated applicative demonstrators.

The SMILE chair aims at answering critical tendencies and needs in autonomous sensing, environmental monitoring and smart actuations while providing innovative solutions through printing technologies and the use of organic materials for environmental concerns.
