    Abstract

    The objective of this project is to support the EC in defining topics and measures to strengthen the position of Europe in the globalvalue chain of semiconductor and semiconductor-based photonics, by focussed cooperation initiatives with other leadingsemiconductor regions.The starting point will be the identification of European and non-EU industrial strengths and gaps in the field of semiconductors withthe support of industrial organization, while emerging technologies will be explored through the participation of leading researchcentres.The project will profit of already existing international cooperation initiatives among regions, like ITRS2 and IRDS, to define possiblecooperation areas and modes. ICOS will also benefit from a project leader who has matured extensive experience in the coordinationof 6 EU projects in the field of semiconductors.As a result, the project will provide advice to the EC on joint actions to be implemented with leading semiconductor countries toreinforce the European position, supported by an in depth analysis of risks vs. expected benefits. The actions may include exchange ofresearch results, joint research activities, researchers’ exchange programs and joint definition of standards.A proper dissemination of results will take place through joint events and participation to main conferences of the sector, bothEuropean and international.

    Obiettivo 3. Assicurare la salute e il benessere per tutti e per tutte le età

    Abstract

    Obiettivo del progetto Athos è sviluppare un dispositivo biomedicale per la valutazione continua della velocità di propagazione dell’onda di polso (PWV, pulse wave velocity) che sia affidabile nella misura, facile nell’esecuzione del procedimento e non richieda un alto investimento economico da parte del fruitore. Attraverso la valutazione della PWV è infatti possibile stimare la rigidità arteriosa (stiffness) in maniera non invasiva. La rigidità è un fattore predittivo indipendente significativo del rischio e della mortalità cardiovascolare, come citato dalle linee guida europee dell’ipertensione. A differenza di tutti gli altri parametri cardiovascolari, la velocità di propagazione riesce a mantenere il suo valore predittivo e prognostico anche dove gli altri si rivelano inaffidabili e, per questo, viene considerata il gold standard tra gli indici di stiffness. L’importanza di tale parametro fatica però a decollare nella pratica medica e ad espandersi nel mondo ospedaliero per molteplici motivi. Uno dei principali è dovuto alle difficoltà di esecuzione della misura e al tempo che questa richiede. Finora, la valutazione della PWV avviene in modo puntuale: prima vengono acquisiti i segnali delle onde di polso e poi, in un secondo momento, viene valutata la velocità che quest’onda impiega a propagarsi fra due punti attraverso algoritmi specifici. Ad oggi, infatti, non esiste una soluzione che garantisca il monitoraggio continuo del parametro, come controllo retroattivo diretto dello stato di salute del soggetto sotto esame. Il tempo richiesto per l’analisi dei dati e la stima fa sì che questa misura, sebbene molto utile perché correlata con molteplici parametri fisiologici (pressione sanguigna, frequenza cardiaca etc.), non venga molto utilizzata nella pratica clinica. Attraverso la soluzione proposta, tale prospettiva può subire un radicale cambiamento permettendo la diffusione della valutazione del parametro PWV stesso. Con il sistema in questione è infatti possibile monitorare in real-time l’andamento della PWV, ampliando considerevolmente le possibili applicazioni e modificando drasticamente la procedura anche in ambienti dove, ad oggi, vista la difficoltà e la poca praticità della misurazione, non viene molto considerata.

    Regionally funded research

    Abstract

    Si tratta di un progetto di ricerca nel campo della sanità che ha come obiettivo la realizzazione di 150 dispositivi indossabili ingegnerizzati integrati attraverso un servizio di telecare, con la specifica funzione direalizzare un monitoraggio remoto continuo di pazienti affetti da scompenso cardiaco.Il Politecnico si occuperà di realizzare un modello matematico rappresentativo dell'interfaccia elettrodo-cutecassa toracica e delle variazioni di impedenza o comportamento eletrrico in seguito alla presenza di liquidi subcutanei. Si studierà un primo modello per la generazione delle prime specifiche progettuali (M1-M2), per poi passare in una seconda fase al suo affinamento (M3-M4).Si svilupperanno circuiti custom per le interfacce e la lettura dei segnali provenienti dagli elettrodi di prelievo, per poi gestirne le informazioni a livello firmware e software di primo livello.Si testeranno e valideranno le diverse sottoparti, per poi passare al sistema completo, dando supporto ai test eseguiti presso gli ambulatori clinici. In queste varie fasi sarà messa a disposizione la strumentazione dei laboratori del gruppo MiNES del Politecnico, sia per test campione in laboratorio che per test realizzati in ospedale, trasferendo le apparecchiature necessarie utili alla realizzazione delle misure.

    UE-funded research - JTI ENIAC

    Abstract

    Micro-Optical MEMS, micro-mirrors and pico-projectors.Lab4MEMS II will feature the Pilot Line for innovative technologies on advanced Micro-Opto-Electro-Mechanical Systems(MOEMS). This is not just a special class of MEMS systems in fact, but it deals with MEMS merged with Micro-optics, whichinvolves sensing or manipulating optical signals on a very small size scale, using integrated mechanical, optical, andelectrical systems. MOEMS includes a variety of devices including optical switch, array of micro-mirrors, optical crossconnect,lasers and micro lens amongst others. These devices are usually fabricated using micro-optics and standardmicromachining technologies using materials like silicon, molybdenum (Mo), silicon dioxide, silicon nitride (Si3N4), piezocoating, etc.The trend toward miniaturization and integration of conventional optical systems will accelerate the adoption of MOEMStechnology in commercialization of many industrial components which are today’s most desirable elements of opticalcommunication, i.e. MEMS-actuated micro optical mirrors, autofocus lens or 3D laser micro-scanners.

    UE-funded research

    Abstract

    The project focuses on closer cooperation in the university sector and transparency of qualifications and recognition methods. It is aimed at common courses development for the new skills needed for the new jobs in the multidisciplinary nanotechnology for MSc degree level, professionals and teacher training. There are few individual research teams, laboratories or companies that can claim to be able to respond to the technological challenges. To meet these needs in this project 3 European and 6 Israeli universities and 3 research centres will share infrastructure, technological and human resources to develop certified modules, based on ECTS to be used in the corresponding partners’ training programmes in nanotechnologies. Although the HE in Israel does not follow the ECTS system, the objective of the Tempus Curricular Reform is 'Modernisation of curricula in academic disciplines identified as priorities by the Partner Countries, using the ECTS, the three cycle system and the recognition of degrees'. So, in this project we will work towards modernisation of engineering and physics curricula in nanotechnologies and test the introduction of ECTS within 6 Israeli universities and recognition of credits in the EU universities.Each course will be designed by the best laboratory/department in the field which dispose with the necessary infrastructure and facilities. They will develop e-learning courses and record lectures and practical work in clean rooms in nanotechnologies.
