ONE-P final public meeting - 16 December 2011, Brussels, Belgium

The ONE-P final public meeting will be organised in the European Parliament in Brussels on December 16, 2011 under the patronage of Philippe Lamberts MEP.

The aim of the EU funded Organic Nanomaterials for Electronics and Photonics (ONE-P) project is to develop high-performance, low-cost multifunctional materials and their process technology to strengthen industrialization of the electronics and photonics sector in Europe. At this meeting the results of ONE-P will be summarised and the field of organic electronics and photonics presented. Organic electronics and photonics is a disruptive technology that will probably play an essential role in tomorrow’s energy, environmental, ICT, security and health challenges and open new doors to innovate since organic materials allow flexible, unbreakable, light weight and low-cost devices and applications and enable environmentally friendly fabrication processes.

Registrations will be available beginning of September on this website.
