AUTh @ 9th International Conference on Flexible and Printed Electronics - ICFPE 2018

AUTh has participated at the 9th International Conference on Flexible and Printed Electronics, Grand Metropark Universal Dinosaur Town Hotel in Changzhou, China, September 25-28, 2018. Dr. A. Laskarakis presented an oral presentation with title: Intelligent Nanomanufacturing of Flexible Organic Electronic Devices: Towards the Industry 4.0 to the high number of participants to the ICFPE2018, which include representatives from Universities from China, Korea, Japan, Singapore, as well as from other Asian countries. Furthermore, the majority of the participants to the event came from the Industrial communities of China, which exhibited strong interest to the activities of SmartLine. Dr. A. Laskarakis had several discussions with these representatives and exchanged views and prospects about the implementation of in-line metrology and control tools for manufacturing of a huge variety of novel thin films and products by solution-based processes in sheet-to-sheet and roll-to-roll configurations. These views are expected to strongly benefit the SmartLine project since they will provide new ideas on how to implement and integrate metrology tools for the quality control of various materials in different manufacturing configurations.

Moreover, Dr. A. Laskarakis has discussed with representatives from the Industrial Association for Organic Electronics of China (IAPE), and the Korean Association of Organic & Printed Electronics (KOPEA) and strengthen the links between these associations with the LTFN and opened the way for future collaborations with the SmartLine partners. Another benefit of this participation/presentation to ICFPE2018 was the commitment of the Asian colleagues to participate to the events to be organized by the SmartLine project to network directly with the partners and establish bilateral industrial collaborations.

Finally, in this event, Dr. A. Laskarakis met with representatives from OE-Association and discussed future activities in the fields of Organic & Printed Electronics.
