ITEAM participates in the European Innovative Training Network FINESSE

The Photonics Research Labs of the ITEAM Institute participate, from last
October 2016, in a new European Marie Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN)
called FINESSE. FINESSE (FIbre NErvous Sensing SystEms) is a collaborative
research and training network, gathering together 26 European universities,
research centers and industrial partners, with the common objective of
training 15 Early Stage Researchers in the development of disruptive new
optical ‘artificial nervous systems’ and boosting the industrial uptake of
these sensors by technology transfer from academic research to the European
optical fibre sensor industry.

The objective behind FINESSE (FIbre
NErvous Sensing SystEms)
is to mimic the nervous system of living bodies by turning man-made and natural
structures into objects that are sensitive to external stimuli owing to
advanced distributed fibre-optic sensor technology, with the objective to
either give early warning in case of possible danger or occurrence of damage,
or to optimise the operation of the structure to allow for a sustainable use of
natural resources and assets. Enabling such functionalities will greatly
contribute to realizing a safe, secure and energy efficient Europe, which is an
identified societal concern.
