Heat and light for powering the Internet of Things
Harvestore is a new European project for the development of beyond-state-of-the-art technologies in the field of Internet of Things.
Our “μ-harvestorers” will be able to collect and store energy from heat and light at the same time, in order to serve a whole family of new-generation portable devices. They will be powerful, small, and environmental friendly.
A EUROPEAN NETWORK
Harvestore puts together some of the main actors of science and technology across Europe. Research, technology centers and advanced industries from 6 different countries have joined their efforts with the goal of opening-up a new technology paradigm in the world of IoT.
At the edge of science and technology
Nanoioncs and Iontronics
With Harvestore, we will fabricate new artificial materials with superior performance. Fast electrical conduction and high charge storage capacity will be achieved by taking advantage of nanoscale engineering.
Advanced science and mainstream fabrication techniques will be bridged by the use of silicon technology. Silicon combines unique properties of manufacturability, abundance and low environmental impact.
The group of Dr. Monica Burriel "Oxides for Nanoioncs Devices" (Grenoble, France) is looking for a postodoctoral researcher to work on the development of electrochemical materials and on their advanced characterization within the framework of the Harvestore project. More info here!
A big participation from the project is planned for E-MRS Meeting 2019, to be held in Warsaw from Sept. 16th to 19th. Harvestore will sponsor the symposium A: "Ion-related phenomena in nanoscale systems: From fundamentals to applications" and will be present for a dedicated session in the same symposium on Tuesday afternoon, starting at 9 am. Several related talks will be presented by project partners...follow us on Twitter for the latest news!
Nature electronics has recently published a review article by the project coordinator Albert Tarancon (IREC), who comments on the potential of CMOS technology and thermoelectric-based microdevices for powering next-generation IoT nodes.
