Advanced functional materials supporting high-speed roll to roll integration of hybrid electronics

Join the partners of the EU funded Horizon 2020 project, Nano-Enabled Conducting Materials Accelerating Device Applicability (NECOMADA), at their event showcasing the pilot line. Talks and workshop activities will cover a wide range of topics from novel nanomaterial production, through formulating with advanced materials and their inclusion in functional IoT devices. Find out how the pilot line can be used to support and upscale new IoT opportunities across a range of market sectors and join hands-on workshops on formulation, printing and electronic integration.

At the event you will hear from industry experts, what the market drivers are within specific markets and how technology is at the point where it can be used within wider consumer markets to get significant benefits. You will also have the opportunity to take part in a hands-on workshop using the state of art facilities at CPI. Developing advanced functional materials to deliver customised conductive inks and flexible adhesives, compatible with volume manufacture of hybrid and large area electronics.

The consortium is made up of nanomaterial suppliers, chip and integrated circuit manufacturers, and businesses with a demand for what has been made. Join them for this exciting event and come away with an understanding of this technology which will be at the forefront of IoT opportunities within the consumer sector and start getting benefits for your business today. Hosted at CPI’s facilities in Sedgefield specialising in formulation and printed electronics.
