Together with our partners Minalogic and OES, we are proud to announce a series of online sessions bringing SMEs, Midcaps, Labs and RTOs together around Flexible & Wearable Electronics (FWE) Business Opportunities.
Flexible& Wearable Electronics have enormous potential, from healthcare to automotive to textiles, and the business possibilities are endless.
Cooperation and networking are essential to get the tech just right, and to bring viable products to (new) markets.
In three sessions spread across January and March 2021, we invite you to
meet with potential partners through
visionary key notes
pitching sessions (possibilities as well as challenges)
Members: Apply to pitch your tech or your application!
We’re currently offering spots to pitch to DSP Valley members only. If you think you have a can’t-miss pitch, feel free to get in touch via email: jane.judge[at]dspvalley.com
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.
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.
