2022 Challenge: Energy Materials with Biological Applications
With the overall aim of enabling novel applications within the life- or biosciences, the challenge is to design, model, synthesize, and/or characterize novel bio-compatible energy materials. The focus is on energy harvesting, transforming, or storage materials with potential application for health-tech wearables, implantable devices, or other bioelectronic applications. The research should also address biocompatibility and potential toxicological or mechanically adverse effects. Non-excluding examples of research include:
- Material research for bio-compatible energy materials for harvesting, transforming, or storage systems with potential use in bioelectronics devices.
- Material research for developing soft bioelectronic interfaces or biomimetic flexible materials.
- Applications in health wearables or implantable devices, including powering of bioelectronic sensors.
- Computationally driven bio-energy-materials development and modelling using artificial intelligence
