At the 7th Korea-EU NanoWorkshop Dr. Argiris Laskarakis presented an overview of the activities, pilot lines and in-line characterization facilities for Organic & Printed Electronics in Greece.
He outlined the connection of OEs characterization, modelling and manufacturing data to industry applications (automotive, energy and construction) which is achieved in the Open Innovation Environment Platform being developed in the Horizon 2020 Project CORNET.
HOPE-A was at “INDustrial TECHnologies 2018 - Innovative industries for smart growth” to display its members innovative potential, meet experts from Industry, Technology and Policy and strengthen collaborations for upcoming joint ventures. HOPE-A, also, spread the word on the exciting Open Innovation Environment being developed in the Cornet Horizon 2020 Project to its Stakeholders!
The 9th Workshop on Flexible & Printed Electronics Industry (Targeting the Digital Transformation) – the leading event in the groundbreaking multi-billion sector of Flexible & Printed Electronics – co-organized by HOPE-A and the Nanotechnology Lab LTFN, which was held on the 22nd of October in Divani Caravel Hotel in Athens, concluded with great success and eagerness for collaborations which will make use of the sector’s potential and will drive the country’s economy forward.
The Workshop brought together top Stakeholders from Greece and from abroad coming from a wide range of fields where FPEs are applied and which FPEs revolutionize, i.e. Energy, Lighting, Electronics, the Automotive Industry and Transport, Intelligent Packaging, Smart Textiles and Wearables, Sensors and Biosensors, Healthcare, and their interconnection to the IoT which will digitally transform the Industry. Inspiring talks were given by internationally acknowledged scientists and engineers on how state-of-the-art technologies generated in Greece have to be exploited by the Industry. Key industrial players presented how they integrate FPEs in their business endeavors and what promising applications and challenges emerge. Business Associations and Cluster coordinators outlined their activities in coordinating industrial players with the scope to grab the chance lying ahead and create joint ventures. Moreover, representatives from Venture Capital firms and the European Commission informed the attendees on funding opportunities there are to support their entrepreneurial plans and collaborations.
