AlmaScience constituted as a collaborative laboratory, is an applied research organization focused on innovation, development and deployment of cellulose-based smart and sustainable applications.
Through the exploitation of nanotechnology and advanced functional materials and their use to create ecologically game-changing paper-based, fully printable, multifunctional devices and systems. AlmaScience aims to deliver ecologically sustainable and universally accessible solutions by effectively enabling Internet of Things (IoT) in areas like security, environment, health, brand protection, electronics, logistics, food or marketing.
Paper electronics holds a unique potential to bring intelligence into everyday objects and areas of our daily life such as radio-frequency identification (RFID), health, tags in shipping and inventory management, self- updating plane tickets or food labels.
These new technologies offer new cost-saving solutions, energy-efficient processes and fully recyclable alternatives. Silicon chips at low cost, disposable electronics market segment with a fully ecological and sustainable approach and development will impact the IoT, the Fourth Platform and all the emergent digital technologies. Also, Point of Care smart diagnostic devices aim to replace current expensive diagnostic technologies by disposable and cost-effective counterparts, exploiting digital fabrication and functionalities on engineered paper substrates.
