Uppsala University, B-CRATOS coordinator, is a research university in Uppsala, Sweden. Founded in 1477, it is the oldest university in Scandinavia, and ranks among the world’s 100 best universities in several high-profile international rankings.
The Division of Solid-State Electronics, Department of Electrical Engineering, Uppsala University (UU), has three major focus areas: Electronics for Life Sciences and Medical Technologies, Electronics for Brian Inspired Computing and Energy-Efficient Electronics. It strives for innovations related to electronic sensors, biomechatronics, neuroprosthetics and medical systems for continuous and real-time health monitoring. It also invests in energy conversion and electricity generation to operate small self-supporting sensor systems. The technological base for the research is thin-film technology, semiconductor processing and semiconductor device technology using the in-house state-of-art cleanroom facilities, supported by device and process simulation as well as electrical and optical characterisation. For the Medical Technologies aspect, the focus is on innovations such as near-body-network systems, point-of-care electronic sensors, and battery-free wearable and medical systems for continuous and real-time health monitoring
