Welcome to ThermaSMART

Smart thermal management of high-power microprocessors using phase-change.

Project ThermaSMART is an international and intersectoral network of organisations working on a joint research programme in the area of phase-change cooling of microprocessors and high-power electronic devices.

ThermaSMART aims to gain a competitive advantage through the exposure of secondees to new research environments both in academia and industry which will enable exchange of crucial skills and knowledge and empower their career prospects in this increasingly important area.

Our partners span across 5 continents: Europe, Asia, Africa, North America and South America. Our project will promote international and inter-sector collaboration through research and innovation staff exchanges, and sharing of knowledge and ideas from research to market (and vice-versa). 

ThermaSMART also offers a unique opportunity to train 41 early stage researchers (over 285 exchange months) in state-of-the-art experimental and modelling techniques for phase-change and microfabrication both in participating Universities and industries.

In addition to regular consortium meetings, technical workshops and research publications, we will hold summer schools at Maryland, Kyushu, Toronto and Edinburgh, alongside several exchange programmes to sustain a long-term interaction between the partners.
