General Olfaction and Sensing Projects at a European Level (GOSPEL) Workshop on Plastic Chemical Sensors

April 9, 1pm - 6:30pm | April 10, 9am - 5pm

In the electronics industry, organic materials are increasingly used to print electronics on plastic foils. This workshop will explore how these techniques can be expanded to integrate sensors on plastics, with a special focus on chemical sensors in the gas and liquid phase.

The workshop will bring together research institutes, manufacturers and end users to discuss how to pursue this concept. It is hosted by GOSPEL, a research network set up by the European Commission to develop new techniques and technologies in artificial olfaction.

This two-day GOSPEL workshop will cover the following areas:
  • State of the art in electronics and sensors on plastic
  • Sensors on flexible substrates
  • Processing on flexible substrates
  • Electronics and wireless communication
  • System integrators and applications

This will be a multidisciplinary event, and the organisers are interested in participants from areas such as chemical sensors (gas sensors and biosensors), organic and inorganic materials for printed sensors and electronics, materials science, printed electronics production and systems integration.

Speakers include:
Raghu Das, CEO - IDTechEx Inc, USA
Prof. Zhenan Bao - Stanford University, USA
Prof. Ananth Dodabalapur - University of Texas, USA
Prof. Dermot Diamond - Dublin City University, Ireland
Prof. Luisa Torsi - University of Bari, Italy
Dr. Mohammed Mabrook - University of Durham, UK
Franz Padinger, CTO - NANOIDENT, Austria
Prof. Magnus Berggren - University of Linkoping, Sweden
Prof. Vivek Subramanian - UC Berkeley, USA
Dr. Ruth Shinar - Iowa State University, USA
Dr. Markku Kdnsdkoski - VTT Technical Research, Finland
Dr. Nicolae Barnsan - University of Tuebingen, Germany

There is also the possibility to present a poster at this workshop. People who are interested in presenting a poster should send an e-mail to Danick Briand,, with the title of their poster.
