Abstract

The proposal of the National Institute for Science and Technology on Organic Electronics (INEO) is to compose a network that brings together researchers with the aim of developing science and technology on Organic Electronics and related systems, It comprises more than 40 research groups in different areas of physics, chemistry and engineering, resulting in a network able to tackle the multidisciplinary challenges of the field of Organic Electronics and hybrid organic-inorganic systems. The main objectives of INEO listed below in this form h research, the proposal is divided in two branchs. Branch A is composed by projects within the scope of synthetic organic electronic materials and nanostructured thin films, which deal with investigation of molecular structures and filmorphologies, electrical transport, interface phenomena and optical properties of organic and hybrid semiconducting materials and related devices, as well as the exploration of related areas in printed electronics. Branch B deals with physicochemical properties of biologically-relevant molecules and ensuing impact on their physiological actions. The basic knowledge of materials behavior may boost the development biosensors, bioelectronic devices, drug delivery systems and tissue engineering applications. The branch C describes the activities in dissemination of knowledge that are proposed within INEO, which are based on three main subprojects: (i) "CiênciaWeb"; (ii) Travelling Science Bus; and (iii) Future Scientists Program. Finally, branch D describes proposed activities in collaboration with enterprises and public sectors, as well as the support given by university innovation agencies, and projects related to prospection opportunities of industrial applications.
