ECS Intranet:
Micro fabrication production technology for MEMS on new emerging smart textiles/flexibles

The Microflex project is a Framework program 7 EU funded project and was submitted to the FP7-NMP-2007-Large-1 call.

The Microflex project is concerned with flexible materials in the form of high added value smart fabrics/textiles which are able to sense stimuli and react or adapt to them in a predetermined way.

Microflex will exploit micro fabrication to produce, using custom printing process, active functions cost efficiently. We propose to develop fundamental micro fabrication production technologies for MEMS on fabrics/textiles using flagship demonstrator applications. This will result in a cheap, east to design, flexible, rapid way to manufacture multifunction smart textiles/garments for a large set of multi-sectorial applications.
