The results of the European MSCA Staff Exchanges 2023 competition turned out to be very favorable for Lodz University of Technology. Prof. Przemysław Data from the Department of Molecular Physics will coordinate the project Green Horizon on Organic Semiconductor Technologies - GHOST. The project's value is nearly 1.5 million euros from the European Commission's Horizon Europe program.


Prof. Przemysław Data from the Faculty of Chemistry at TUL explains, The GHOST project focuses on developing low-energy organic electronics using sustainable materials and eco-friendly production processes. He will lead an international research team of scientists from England, Germany, Denmark, France, Brazil, Japan, Australia, Canada, Taiwan, South Korea, as well as the Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences, and the Faculty of Chemistry at Lodz University of Technology.


Professor Data explains that the project's goal is to understand intermolecular interactions and their impact on the functioning of devices such as organic AMOLED matrices in our smartphones or organic photovoltaic cells (OPV). Through biologically inspired research, scientists will strive to develop new, environmentally friendly technologies based on non-toxic materials that will be more efficient and environmentally friendly.

As part of the GHOST project, scientists will also focus on improving the stability and electro-optical properties of materials, which will allow for the development of advanced electronic devices such as OLED lighting and IoT (Internet of Things) sensor systems.

A total of 233 applications were submitted for the MSCA Staff Exchanges 2023 competition, of which 73 were recommended for funding by the European Commission. Projects from seven Polish coordinating units were included on the main list, among them the project from Lodz University of Technology.
