Proteins demonstrate exceptional structural and electrical conduction properties for designing functional materials. The goal of the EU-funded e-Prot project is to rationally design efficient conductive protein systems and produce protein-based conductive structures and materials. This breakthrough relies on a multidisciplinary scientific approach that combines a profound understanding of protein building blocks, biomolecular design principles and state-of-the-art synthetic biology, as well as cutting-edge characterisation techniques and computational models of protein conduction properties. Selected engineered conductive proteins will be upscaled and will find use as smart ink-based conductors and ionic electrolytes in energy storage devices.
