3D Printed Electronics – be part of the ecosystem

by Corne Rentrop, Holst Centre

The printed electronics community is fastly growing. The latest actions involve high TRL work, aiming towards upscaling and industrialisation. This requires input from the complete value chain. Machine builders, materials and technology suppliers, are working with end-users to meet market specific requirements and allow industrialisation. The talk discusses how this is organised at the Holst Centre, complemented with some end-users examples.
