HOPE-A and its counterpart in China IAPE (Innovation Alliance of Printed Electronics of China) are organizing the HOPE-A – IAPE Joint Workshop on Organic Electronics during ISFOE at NANOTEXNOLOGY 2018 on Monday 2nd of July!
The Workshop will present the current state of technology and entrepreneurial activities of the Associations' members in Greece and China on Organic and Printed Electronics nano-materials, devices, equipment, precision metrology tools, manufacturing processes, integrated systems, products, for applications in Energy, Lighting, Electronics, Automotive, Healthcare, 3D printing, Wearables, IoT, to name but a few. The goal of this Joint Workshop is to promote Networking, Joint Ventures and Business between members of HOPE-A and IAPE. The collaboration between the two Associations makes up for a main driver for the advancement of the Cooperation between Greece and China in Technology, Innovation and Business. Do not miss it!
HOPE-A together with NAMEC and Nanotechnology Lab LTFN organize the Special Workshop 'EU Projects on Nanotechnologies & Advanced Materials for OPVs and Perovskites' during NANOTEXNOLOGY 2018! Do not miss the state-of-the-art presentations on the latest advances on Organic Electronics!
This Workshop focuses on the cutting edge advances on 3D Printing, 3D Bioprinting, Digital and Additive Manufacturing approaches for Flexible Organic and Printed Electronics, Healthcare, Wearables, Automotive, etc. and for the fabrication of novel nanomaterials in advanced device architectures. As the world of 3D Printing is evolving, electronics are becoming a new key player. Functional elements such as sensors, biosensors and switches are now being integrated into 3D printed products, paving the way for exciting new markets, applications and opportunities. 3D Printing also encompasses a variety of different manufacturing processes. The processes are all primarily additive, with materials being deposited only where needed, as opposed to traditional substractive processes, like machining. This results in significantly less materials' wastage, which keeps costs and environmental impact down. Also, this workshop connects the Manufacturing with In-Line and Real-Time Monitoring Process and Control approaches to enable low-cost and high-volume manufacturing of Organic Electronic Devices.
