SmartEEs Matchmaking: Logistics & Packaging

7 May 2021 @ 09:00 13:00 CEST

Logistics and packaging are an integral part of the global economy, something we’ve all realized even more so as during the Corona Crisis. Adding flexible and wearable technologies to the mix presents myriad possibilities for reimagining age-old issues

Packages need to be tracked, but so do items in warehousesPrinted electronics and flexible sensors offer new opportunities for discreet and cheaper tracking and inventory solutions. Printed inks can be integrated into packaging for perishable goods, handy for the consumer but also valuable for producers, wholesalers, and distributors.

Entire supply chains depend on efficient and effective logistics and packaging, and the possibilities for integration of flexible and wearable electronics are, quite literally, endless.

Automotive Edition

The combination of flexible electronics and automotive has a bright future, with OLED lighting illuminating the path to come.

Whether it is sensors, OLED displays and lighting, heaters or other applications, there are plenty of opportunities for flexible electronics to be integrated into automotive applications. Some of these technologies have already been on the market for a few years, e.g. OLED lighting appearing in rear taillights, while recent developments in flexible and printed electronics can supply new, exciting functionalities. The current trends of sustainable transportation and self-driving vehicles open a lot more opportunities for flexible electronics to be utilized. Market analysts predicted the market size for flexible electronics in automotive will exceed $5.5 billion by 2026.

Whether we’re discussing integrating flexible electronics into automotive parts, or matching flexible electronic technology to digital applications in the automotive sector, there are many ways the two sectors offer each other fruitful collaboration.

Textiles Edition

Flexible & Wearable Electronics (FWE) in textiles offers all kinds of possibilities in fields such as medical, sport, artistic, aerospace, military, manufacturing, construction and much more.

Possibilities offered by converging textile and electronic can push limits by extending the functionality and usefulness of common fabrics. The development of smart materials allows for a wide spectrum of functions, for instance: flexibility, ergonomics, low power consumption, integration and eventually autonomy.

FWE can integrate a high level of intelligence in textiles, especially regarding interaction with the environment and users, thereby opening an endless window of opportunities.

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.

Webinar Flexible Electronics

10 December 2020 @ 10:30 12:30 CET

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.

DSP Valley active in Flexible Electronics and Healthcare

Healthcare is a major market for both established and emerging technologies. Flexible Electronics is a growing field gaining more and more momentum. Flexible electronics in healthcare is a combination with a bright future.

As our Newsletter readers and members will know, DSP Valley is currently active in three Flexible (and Wearable) Electronics projects: Flexlines (focused on creating a one-stop-shop for flexible electronics), SmartX (specifically geared towards flexible electronics in textiles), and SmartEEs (aimed at helping innovative companies digitize). This is by design: flexible (and wearable) electronics have high potential. This is in part because of their many possible applications.

One of DSP Valley’s core programs in Smart Health. We’re co-founders of the IBN flanders.health. This year, we’ve worked hard alongside our partners Flanders.bio and MedTech Flanders in getting a Spearhead Cluster for Health Tech off the ground in Flanders.

Collaborative Digital Business Breeding

Our work in the health technology and flexible electronics sectors is essential to our central mission: breeding digital business through collaborative business development. The European Flexible and Wearable Electronics projects and the flanders.health IBN and coming Spearhead Cluster are concrete examples of creating collaborative business opportunities. These go beyond single company, or even single application, vision and seek to build and support strong ecosystems that will be economically sustainable.

This is why we were delighted to read IDTechEx’s analysis. The abstract of their report “Flexible Electronics in Healthcare 2020-2030” confirms DSP Valley’s perceptions. It reinforces our resolve to continue to work hard to bring Flexible Electronics and Health Tech together, in our region and beyond.
