Mariano Campoy-Quiles and his team obtain an ERC Proof of Concept Grant

Mariano Campy-Quiles has received an ERC Proof of Concept grant to develop autonomous wireless sensors, self-powered by organic thermoelectrics.

In this case, the future device will present a direct application in vineyards in order to keep a live record of the most important parameters for the best development of the crops, such as temperature and humidity.

The project awarded, called ORGEVINE (Organic thermoelectric Generators to power precision Viticulture sensor Networks), continues the work already started in the project SENSORAÏM, where Mariano’s team, composed by Sebastian Reparaz, Bernhard Dörling and Ivan Álvarez started developing the devices that will be used to optimize the growth conditions in the vineyard in order to improve the quality and sustainability in viticulture.
