HOPE-A participated at the Printed Electronics Meeting organized by its business partner Afelim - the French Printed Electronics Association. The day's focus was on the latest advances on Printed Electronic Sensors. The two associations strengthened their ties bringing their members closer to joint business ventures.


CORNET 2nd Technical Meeting has been successfully completed, with primary focus on Materials' Specifications and the Establishment of the Open Innovation Platform & Database. The meeting took place at the International Congress Center Munich, at Messe Munich, on March 13th, with participation of GRANTA, Fluxim, AUTh, OET, HOPE-A, NPL, UOI and USUR.

Nanotechnology Lab LTFN, OET, and BL-Nanobiomed (HOPE-A members), together with HOPE-A, will participate at Printed Electronics Europe, 11-12 April 2018. The event will take place at Berlin, Germany (Estrel Convention Center). We are looking forward for your visit at our booth 011. More information here.

HOPE-A together with its members Nanotechnology Lab LTFN, OET and Advent Technologies succesfully participated at the International Exhibition & Conference for the Printed Electronics Industry - LOPEC which concluded on March 21st.


HOPE-A together with NAMEC-Cluster, Nanotechnology Lab LTFN and the NANOTEXNOLOGY 2018 Organizing Committee, organize a Special Workshop on EU Projects on Nanotechnologies & Advanced materials for OPVs and Perovskites gathering coordinators of EU Projects, Technology, Industry & Market experts.

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.

HOPE-A is expanding its strong worldwide network by signing a Collaboration Agreement with the Chinese Association "Innovation Alliance of Printed Electronics of China - IAPE"!

This is the 5th Collaboration Agreement HOPE-A has signed, following the MoUs with Organic Electronics Saxony (OES), the Center for Organic Production Technologies - N. Rhine-Westphalia (COPT.NRW), the French Printed Electronics Association (AFELIM) and the Japanese Printed Electronics Association (JAPEC).
