Stimuli-responsive Membranes for consumer goods sustainability

Objective

SMARTMEM is a multidisciplinary project leveraging the emerging technology platforms around so-called smart membranes
and evolving this platform to commercial use in consumer good products. The objective of this project is the training of 5
PhD students in various scientific fields around membrane technology, involving disciplines from advanced materials
synthesis, to membrane production, linking product application and product performance driving new consumer value. The
training will be setup in a multi sector way for the students to learn the technical depth of the disciplines as well as the
innovation cycle from idea to market application and commercialisation. The objective of the project will be achieved through
finding applicability in established markets like textiles with functional benefits, air care devices with health benefits and
innovate beyond like develop improved microcapsules which release on demand and improved single dose detergent
products, among others. Therefore, SMARTMEM will contribute to accomplish the goals of Europe 2020 strategy through:
- training of highly skilful scientists in emerging fields such as stimuli-responsive materials
- placing Europe at the vanguard of innovation in sustainable consumer goods by smart controlled release
