The strong drive for more complex systems and more advanced packaging, including optics and photonics, creates a chance to retain the manufacturing and packaging value chain to Europe – or even start to bring it back. APPLAUSE supports this by building on the European expertise in advanced packaging and assembly to develop new tools, methods and processes for high volume mass manufacturing of electrical and optical components. The technologies will be piloted in six industrial use cases, from the development of low-cost, miniaturised sensors and the improvement of the manufacturing process up to the use of such new devices in application areas such as personal health monitoring. Within the APPLAUSE project, Nuromedia will develop intelligent, data-driven visualisation dashboards to be used primarily in the health sector both by professionals and end users.
APPLAUSE has received funding from the ECSEL JU under grant agreement No 826588. The JU receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme as well as Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Finland, Austria, France, Hungary, Latvia, Norway, Switzerland and Israel.
