TWINNING FOR NEW GRAPHENE-BASED COMPOSITES IN ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE SHIELDING

Objective

Intensive growth of both the telecommunication and electronic industry in recent years is occurring. With the spreading of electronic device usage in everyday life, the pollution caused by Electromagnetic Waves (EWs) is ubiquitous. EWs are predominantly emitted from cell phones, Wi-Fi, microwave ovens, etc. Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) demonstrates a strong negative impact on electrical devices and affects human health causing leukemia and brain tumors, and the danger of EMI is underlined for those with implanted active medical devices. Thus, textile fabric that can absorb EWs is in high demand in resolving such a life-threatening matter. Another arising problem with EWs is their effect on the working performance of electronic devices leading to untrusted signals and noise. To prevent degradation by unwanted currents and voltages, instrument obstruction, false results, and to reduce measuring time, materials able to neutralize EMI effects are highly needed. The GrInShield project will bring innovation in the field of shielding materials by exploring new nanomaterials as a protective barrier.
The goal of this project is twofold:
to increase significantly the scientific excellence of the consortium by addressing a scientific issue with potential economic/industrial impact: producing efficient shielding material based on nanotechnology materials for EMI protection;
to improve the administrative skills of the coordinator institution from the widening country staff through collaboration with members of the consortium from FRA, GER, and SLO offices. By working with top-class partners, researchers from the widening country will improve scientific skills, work with cutting-edge instruments and gain frontier education, enhance project writing skills, and improve publication records, while the administration will become a competitive, dynamic and efficient instrument for preparation of international projects as well as their implementation.
