One of the CORNET objectives is to track the Standardization needs of entities active in and benefiting from the Organic Electronics field. Do not miss the opportunity to contribute to a short (~5 min) Survey on Standardization Requirements for Printed Electronics, organised by the CORNET in collaboration with VAMAS. The results of this survey will steer the future direction of international pre-normative work that leads to best practice guides and standards for industry. Do not miss this opportunity. The deadline to reply to this survey is on 31/05/2019.

Why participate?

  • Gain insight into existing and upcoming standards for printed electronics. All participants will receive a draft report (at least 6 months before publication) summarising the current standards, those under development and a summary analysis of all the input from this survey and direct interview about requirements for new standards related to printed electronics.
  • Influence the focus of future international standardization activities. The results of the survey will directly influence the roadmap of pre-normative activities of VAMAS TWA36 and will be disseminated to IEC and other standardisation institutions.

The information collected and the whole process complies with EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). The link to the Survey is the following:

The CORNET Month 12 Consortium meeting was successfully held in GRANTA facilities in Cambridge, UK. The first version of the Open Innovation Environment Platform has been launched and will be constantly optimized for its widespread population! Emphasis is drawn into integrating Industry needs in the triangle of Characterization, Fabrication and Modelling of OEs.
