Electronic Chemical Cells

ECCell was an EU sponsored project in FP7 (the 7th framework program), funded in the ICT Future Emerging Technologies by the FET-Open program. (2008-2011).


The aim of the project was to establish a novel basis for future embedded information technology by constructing the first electronically programmable chemical cell. This has laid the foundation for immersed micro- and nanoscale molecular information processing with a paradigm shift to digitally programmable chemical systems.

The project was also a core project in the chem-bio-IT coordination action COBRA.
