SEMINAR FLEXIBLE ELECTRONICS
Our Flexlines consortium will be present at the DSP Valley seminar ‘Flexible Electronics and Smart Textiles’.
After the presentations, there will be room to listen to pitches of research groups and companies (SMEs), followed by matchmaking and networking time.
Next to Flexible Electronics in general, the workshop will focus on a specific form of flexible electronics: Smart Textiles. According to various studies the market for smart textiles and wearables is expected to enter an exponential growth phase for the European market. The majority of the applications are concentrated in 4 main fields: Protection & Defence, Sports & Fitness, Industrial and Technical Applications and Medical & Healthcare. These markets show a particularly great potential for SMEs to offer customised and niche market solutions with interesting cross-sectoral value chain impact.
This workshop will focus on Flexible Electronics in general and Smart Textiles in detail. We will bring together the companies (SMEs) and research actors, necessary to advance in this exciting domain!
