Presentation Summary

Printed electronics are at a pivotal moment. There are not only tremendous opportunities for innovation and growth in new verticals and industries, but also the chance to define how we bring printed electronics into a new era of infrastructures through cooperation and partnerships.
 
PARC, a Xerox company, has actively built a unique library of PE devices and processes to apply innovation in products, engaging with all the players from material makers to application companies. Janos Veres of PARC will discuss the unique opportunity to "set the rules" for the future of printed electronics, including design, manufacturing processes, and applications already available at PARC. Through the lens of the future of manufacturing infrastructure spearheaded by PARC, he will explore how printed electronics are now part of the larger and growing trend of how we "make" things differently. He will also detail the steps already taken and need to be made in order to make this a reality.

Speaker Biography (Janos Veres)

Janos Veres leads PARC's Printed Electronics Program. His main interest is exploring 2D and 3D printing as a manufacturing technique for electronic devices. By combining novel materials, device designs and unique deposition processes it becomes possible to print flexible circuits, sensors, memory and hybrid electronic systems. PARC's Printed Electronics Program works with material makers, printing firms and consumer product companies to help them commercialize these technologies.
 
Janos has held R&D and manufacturing management positions in material, printing and electronics companies including PolyPhotonix, Kodak, Merck, Avecia and Gestetner, where he developed printed circuits, specialty functional materials, OLEDs, displays, medical devices as well as printing/coating technologies. Janos holds a Ph.D. in Solid State Electronics from Imperial College, London.
