STREAMS Project presence at THERMINIC2018

STREAMS Project was one of the sponsors of the 24th international workshop on Thermal Investigations of ICs and Systems , which was held in Stockholm (Sweden) on September 26th-28th, 2018 (

Also, STREAMS held two special sessions during the workshop, where the main outcomes of the project were presented through the following presentations:

New publication from the STREAMS team in Applied Thermal Engineering Journal

The paper titled “Numerical parametric study of a hotspot-targeted microfluidic cooling array for microelectronics” has been published in the Applied Thermal Engineering Journal. You can find the full paper at the following link:

Two new publications from University of Lleida

The University of Lleida published the paper “Assessement of the impact of non-uniform illumination and temperature profiles on a dense array CPV receiver performance” at the Solar Energy Journal. You can find the paper at the following link:

Also, they participate at the 14th International Conference on Concentrator Photovoltaic Systems (CPV14) with the presentation “Dense array CPV receivers: Impact of the cooling device on the Net PV output for different illumination profiles”.

*With the aim of demonstrating the usefulness of the STREAMS cooling solution in other fields than Microelectronics, and as exposed in the Grant Agreement, STREAMS team assessed the impact in Dense Array Concentrating PhotoVoltaics (CPV) receivers.



Perceval Coudrain went as invited speaker at 2018 Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits

Perceval Coudrain (STMicroelectronics), was invited at the 2018 Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits, that took place on June 18th – 22nd in Honolulu (Hawaii).

The presentation was titled “Shaping circuit environment to face the thermal challenge. State-of-the-art technologies from low to high power electronics”.

Guillaume Savelli presented part of STREAMS work at the ICT2018

Guillaume Savelli will give a conference, as invited speaker, at the 37th International Conference on Thermoelectrics – ICT2018 (1st – 5th July, Caen, France).

The title of his presentation will be “Development of integrated micro-thermoelectric sensors for IC applications”. Authors: G. Savelli, J.-P. Colonna, P. Faucherand and L. Aixala (CEA).

The presentation is now available here: ICT2018

STREAMS Project has been identified as highly innovative by the European Commission

The European Commission has distinguished the STREAMS Project as “Highly Innovative” in the new platform Innovation Radar, a data-driven online tool which provides easy access to innovations supported by EU funding and the innovators behind them. The platform was presented on April’s 10th, at the Digital Day 2018 in Brussels.
