Sustronics

Sustainable and green electronics for the circular economy

Challenge

Sustronics is a funded EU project with the goal to become ‘the’ European flagship project for sustainable electronics, by building an ecosystem to demonstrate how the electronics industry can benefit from:

  • Sustainable materials
  • Sustainable manufacturing
  • Eco-design
  • Energy efficient products
  • Circular business models

 

One of Sustronic’s three use cases is about the fabrication and use of “environmentally compatible single-use electronics” components. Sigma Cognition will collaborate with ONALABS, CSIC and Universitat Rovira i Virgili, on pilot 3.1: single-use diagnostic point-of-care (POC).

Sigma will contribute to data processing related to relevant biomarkers and certain diseases (such as diabetes) to be monitored using sustainable sweat sensors. Our goal is to analyze the data with AI algorithms to predict and provide patients with means to improve their evolution through lifestyle recommendations.

Participating in Sustronics provides us the opportunity to dig deeper into the research of AI algorithms (Machine Learning and Deep Learning) that enable communication, data management and data security, particularly applied to data processing in the e-Health sector, by using sustainable sensors.

Solution

Sigma will support the Sustronics consortium through the creation of AI algorithms and consulting related to the data management and security of data processing.

Results

The project runs from June 2023 thru May 2026, and is currently in the project definition and development phase. Check back for updates!
