The objective of the workshop is to discuss with key stakeholders what sort of actions can be undertaken at European level to drive further innovation, including whether and how building up manufacturing capacity can benefit the community. The programme will consist of pitch presentations followed by open debate on key topics, the outcome of which will inform future EU workprogrammes and initiatives. The agenda will be available very soon.

The topics which will be covered relate to:

  1. Technology development and advancing innovation – structural electronics, wearables, smart textiles etc.;
  2. Access to manufacturing and upscaling the production process of flexible and printed electronics - Roll-to-Roll, Sheet-to-Sheet, Hybrid electronics, etc.
  3. Current strengths, market opportunities and emerging applications for flexible, printed and wearable electronics;
  4. Europe’s position in this domain - current limitations and challenges ahead - what can be done to better support the field.
