The project is focused on the development of novel concepts for soft electromechanical actuators and robotics based on nanocellulose composites. Nanocellulose foams are light weight and compressible, making them ideal for functionalization for actuators. Magnetic and electronic functional composites will be developed and fabricated into novel device concepts.
Treesearch aims at creating a national platform to support the research on new materials from the forest. Research projects conducted within Treesearch research areas and the researchers who are active in these projects are welcome to join the platform.
