Health Edition

Flexible & wearable electronics (FWE) 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.

“Europe’s Challenges Can Be Our Strengths:” DSP Valley on Innovation and Networking

stronger together: the power of networks

At the start of December 2020, Flemish newspaper De Standaard included a special look at innovation in the region.

As part of the campaign, DSP Valley spoke with Media Planet about the importance of networking to digital innovation. CEO Dieter Therssen explained DSP Valley’s philosophy and the benefits networking brings.

“Innovation is never the work of a single company, but often arises from a combination of existing data or products. That implies that you need several companies to realize innovative developments. A good network is one of the key factors for successful innovation.”

-Dieter Therssen

At DSP Valley, we work toward business development in a collaborative spirit, leveraging networks to benefit entire markets and ecosystems. As Dieter put it, “Our biggest challenge is the translation of the technology to the industry. DSP Valley tries to play a role in this. Several things are needed: you need technology, you need people with the talent to convert that technology, you need money, but you also need a network to bring companies together around good ideas.”

Webinar Flexible Electronics

Webinar Flexible Electronics

Flexlines will be organising a last webinar on December 10. At this Closing Event the Flexlines team will be glad to give you an overview of the highlights of the project. Every project partner will present the milestones that have been reached the passed 3 years.

The Flexlines consortium has developed a pilot line and ‘one-stop-shop’ for the realisation of flexible electronics prototypes. Our team will also put a light on the improvement of TFT performance, on thermoforming and injection moulding, on design issues,…

Flexlines is a consortium of research and academic partners and a cluster organization. We want to develop and coordinate the individual links in the Flexible Electronics value chain: processes and infrastructure for design and production. The aim of our project is to build a state-of-the-art but stable pilot line and then set up a one-stop-shop for the realization of Flexible Electronics prototypes

Flexlines unites different players providing access to new Flexible Electronics technologies through one-stop-shop concepts in order to accelerate the design, development, and uptake of advanced applications in Flexible & Wearable Electronics.
