1D-NEON is a 4 year Innovation Action of the H2020 work programme funded by the European Commission under the NMP-22 2015 call topic “Fiber-based materials for non-clothing applications”. The vision of the 1D-NEON project is to create outstanding added value for the textile manufacturing industry. This will be accomplished by developing fibre-based smart materials along with an integrated technology platform for the manufacturing in Europe of new products enabling applications in sensing, lighting, energy and electronics.

Shifting component manufacturing from 2D to 1D fibres opens up the field for a much broader range of free form factors that are made possible by weaving each element onto a multi-functional nano-fibre network.
