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.

EUROSTARS Life Sciences Matchmaking Event

9 September 2020 All day

Carefully considering the current measures taken by the Belgian government, and as the Knowledge for Growth conference is being postponed to September 10, the Eurostars Life Sciences matchmaking event will be organized in 2 sessions: 

The Eurostars Life Sciences matchmaking event is a brokerage event for SMEs looking to cooperate in research and development projects in the context of the Eurostars Calls (next cut-off deadline is 3 September 2020).

To help interested parties in finding international partners (companies, universities, research institutes) with complementary expertise to set up a Eurostars project, the Enterprise Europe Network and the public funding agencies from Belgium, the Netherlands and Nordrhein-Westfalen (Germany) are co-organizing an international matchmaking event for SMEs interested in Life Sciences topics, including health, biotech, medtech and agrotech.

On 9 September 2020, the physical matchmaking event will take place in Ghent, Belgium. Participants will then have the opportunity to learn about the latest services and funding opportunities offered to SMEs for cross-border research projects by the Eurostars and Interreg programmes and how to set up an international project. In addition, the agenda will include pitch and matchmaking sessions for companies who want to submit a proposal in 2021. 

NB: This Eurostars matchmaking event is scheduled the day before the Knowledge for Growth conference, one of the largest conferences in Europe in the domain of Life Sciences, that will take place in the same premises in Ghent. By scheduling the Eurostars event adjacent to this conference, participants will have the opportunity to attend several interesting presentations in the life sciences sector and network further with companies and research institutes active in the field. 

Free

Participants of the Eurostars matchmaking enjoy reduced entry to the Knowledge for Growth (40% discount off the general registration fee) when registering in advance. A discount code will be included in the Eurostars event registration confirmation email. Information on prices and tickets for the conference can be found here.
