SAVVY SCIENCE is a dynamic start-up company developing innovative technologies protected by patent portfolios. In this first Blog post, we would like to introduce the company and give a taste of the future.
The mission of Savvy Science is to protect and transform innovative ideas into commercial success. Since it was founded in the UK in 2017, Savvy Science has already established a network of over 50 clients and partners in Europe, Asia, North America and South America.
Savvy Science operates across several synergistic technology platforms, which include: Sustainable Semiconductors, Printed and Organic Electronics and the Internet of Things:
Semiconductors play an important role in daily life. Their unique optoelectronic properties enable us to construct critical components that drive our computers, smartphones, televisions, lighting, solar panels, and ever more frequently our cars and home appliances. The focus of the Sustainable Semiconductor platform is to continuously develop technologies and solutions to maximize the environmental benefits of semiconductor technology. This could be achieved through higher efficiency, longer operational lifetime or the increased use of sustainable and recyclable materials.
PRINTED AND ORGANIC ELECTRONICS
Printed and Organic Electronics are often grouped together because organic electronic devices are often effectively fabricated using printing processes. Resultant devices are often lightweight and flexible, with an attractive form factor that opens unique design possibilities. Printed and Organic Electronic devices are increasingly adopted in Sustainable Semiconductor devices, such as Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) and Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) panels. The focus of the Printed and Organic Electronics platform is to develop innovative technologies that enable a new wave of sustainable products.
INTERNET OF THINGS
The Internet of Things (IOT) is the ever-expanding network of connected devices. It extends connectivity beyond classic devices such as computers, smartphones, tablets and watches to devices such as vehicles, industrial apparatus, medical devices, home appliances and energy infrastructure. With this connectivity, such devices can now communicate and interact, data can be collected, and remote monitoring or control is enabled. The focus of the Internet of Things platform is to develop novel technologies were Sustainable Semiconductors and Printed and Organic Electronic devices can be used to expand and improve the Internet of Things to benefit the global environment.
Savvy Science develops and delivers innovative technologies and patent portfolios across two platforms: Innovation Projects and Technology Consulting:
Innovative technologies and patent portfolios are developed in-house at Savvy Science. These may be offered for sale or form the basis of dynamic start-up companies. Current innovation projects include the infinibag project, which aims to dramatically reduce plastic waste in the ocean, and the PeroLED project, where displays with vibrant colours are under development.
Savvy Science provides technology and intellectual property services direct to clients and partners. Solutions for all aspects of technology development are provided. Please visit the Savvy Science website to find out more. Numerous technology consulting projects have been successfully completed. Some example projects include development and commercialization of roll-to-roll printed organic photovoltaic (OPV) panels, scale-up of quantum dot technology for next-generation QLED displays, and a deep dive into the printed electronics industry.
MEET THE SAVVY SCIENCE TEAM
Savvy Science was founded by Dr Peter Levermore (Pete), who also serves as Chief Executive Officer of the company. Dr Levermore has pioneered technology development in the printed and organic electronics industry for almost 15 years at global companies such as Universal Display Corporation, Merck KGaA and Sumitomo Chemical Company. During this time, he has developed proprietary technology in Display, Solar and Lighting industries, resulting in over 50 granted and pending patents, and set numerous world records for semiconductor device performance. With the founding of Savvy Science, there is now the opportunity to apply this unique knowledge and experience to develop technologies and sustainable solutions with the specific focus of protecting and enhancing the global environment.
