Short name : NANOFUM
Grant agreement no: Τ2ΔΓΕ-0917
Duration: 29/5/2018-28/5/2021
Coordinator:

NANOFUM aims to bring to the global market highly-evolved, smart gas sensors and cloud-based tools, address specific safety challenges in sanitation and protection of stored products and especially foods.

To achieve this, NANOFUM will:

-promote the use of the new technologies developed within the project to support new lines of sensor devices and systems, also in diverse novel application fields

-promote the comparative evaluation of the potential of SWCNT gas sensors within the European research community, and

-increase awareness on the potential of the SWCNT-based gas sensors integrated network technologies developed within the project in a wider public audience.

Objectives

Objective 1
Refinement of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotube (SWCNT) highly efficient gas sensors and custom design for phosphine (PH3), a versatile gas for stored product protection.
Objective 3
Providing access to sensor data through mobile-friendly cloud apps, which shall be designed specifically for professionals in the Food & Beverage, Food Safety and Pest Management sectors
Objective 2
Adoption of data analytics for achieving sensor precision and mitigating the accuracy limitations of sensing elements (cross-sensitivity, non-linearity).
Objective 4
Developing an end-to-end, holistic solution using best in class Internet of Things building blocks and service deployment paradigms.
