SmartLine is featured in European Commission’s CORDIS news article as majorly optimizing manufacturing in the Organic Large Area Electronics sector together with the H2020 CORNET Project (http://www.cornet-project.eu/).
The news article is highlighting how Printed Solar Cells are transforming Electronics' Manufacturing, and some of the fascinating advantages Organic Electronics acquire, which makes them ideal for implementation in existing and new consumer products in a wide range of areas.

In the same article SmartLine’s partner - OET - record of a 7.4% efficiency for a fully Roll-to-Roll Printed OPV and the aspiration to achieve 9 % efficiency by 2021 are mentioned!
