SmartEEs cluster partners DSP Valley (BE/NL), Minalogic (FR) and OES (DE) are proud to announce a series of online sessions bringing SMEs, Midcaps, Labs and RTOs together around Flexible Electronics Business Opportunities.
New angles, fresh ideas, existing technology.
Flexible & Wearable Electronics (FWE) in textiles offers all kinds of possibilities in fields such as medical, sport, artistic, aerospace, military, manufacturing, construction and much more.
Possibilities offered by converging textile and electronic can push limits by extending the functionality and usefulness of common fabrics. The development of smart materials allows for a wide spectrum of functions, for instance: flexibility, ergonomics, low power consumption, integration and eventually autonomy.
FWE can integrate a high level of intelligence in textiles, especially regarding interaction with the environment and users, thereby opening an endless window of opportunities.
This edition is endorsed by Techtera, the European innovation cluster at the heart of textile transformation, and SmartX, the European smart textiles accelerator, and Polymeris, the French cluster for rubbers, plastics, and polymers,
The combination of flexible electronics and automotive has a bright future, with OLED lighting illuminating the path to come.
Whether it is sensors, OLED displays and lighting, heaters or other applications, there are plenty of opportunities for flexible electronics to be integrated into automotive applications. Some of these technologies have already been on the market for a few years, e.g. OLED lighting appearing in rear taillights, while recent developments in flexible and printed electronics can supply new, exciting functionalities. The current trends of sustainable transportation and self-driving vehicles open a lot more opportunities for flexible electronics to be utilized. Market analysts predicted the market size for flexible electronics in automotive will exceed $5.5 billion by 2026.
Whether we're discussing integrating flexible electronics into automotive parts, or matching flexible electronic technology to digital applications in the automotive sector, there are many ways the two sectors offer each other fruitful collaboration.
This edition is endorsed by AMZ, Saxony's network for the actors of the entire automotive industry value chain, and SenSa, the Saxony Sensor Technology Innovation Cluster that bundles all sensor players in Saxony and provides information on all sensor topics.
Visionary keynotes exploring how FWE technology and applications will evolve
Ecosystems of various stakeholders from across Europe, and especially the cluster-represented regions brought together in one event.
Parallel pitching sessions as well as time for 1-on-1 meetings means you have plenty of opportunity to network
Dedicated partner matching to stimulate cross-over opportunities, using an AI-powered platform that organizes meetings for you in a snap.
Have FWE technology? Or have an application for FWE technology? Put your request out there in one of 3 parallel pitching sessions.
SmartEEs already works hard to develop FWE business opportunities, from a dedicated helpdesk to a bespoke marketplace and funding possibilities.
Flexible electronics in healthcare is a combination with a bright future, in part because of the many combinations of possibilities between the two domains.
Personalized medicine, medical devices, digital medicine, diagnostics, and therapeutics are all robust trends within the healthcare industry. They all promise fertile ground in which to bring the digital and electronic together. By one estimate, the market size for flexible electronics in healthcare will exceed $8.3 billion by 2030.
Whether we're discussing creating medical devices with flexible electronics inside them, or matching flexible electronic technology to digital applications in the healthcare sector, there are many ways the two sectors offer each other fruitful collaboration.
Each edition of the SmartEEs Matchmaking Fridays will take on the same basic agenda and structure, which will be as follows:
Sessions will be online, allowing for broad international participation.
