EMMI partners from GREENMAT Liège and ICMCB Bordeaux participate in the project PECLABEL, "Plasmonic Electrochromic Materials for Dual-Band VIS-NIR Smart Labelling".

Other participants include Leitat Technological Center and Color Sensing (both from Spain), and VTT, Optitune and NordicID (all from Finland).

PECLABEL will build upon a recently emerged smart labelling technology based on electrochromic materials, bearing a high scientific and economic potential for processing highly-efficient optically-commutable display devices. PECLABEL partners will develop environment-friendly inks of metal-oxide-based plasmonic nanostructures for designing dual-band, VIS-NIR spectrally-selective surfaces and devices, enabling a new generation of energy-saving electrochromic labelling systems.

The project has started in September 2023 and will operate for 3 years.

PECLABEL methodology

The PECLABEL project was selected in the Joint Transnational Call 2022 of M-ERA.NET 3, which is an EU-funded network of about 49 funding organisations (Horizon 2020 grant agreement No 958174).
