innoLAE 2020: Breakthrough Technologies and New Applications
The 6th Innovations in Large-Area Electronics Conference (innoLAE) returns to the Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre, Cambridge, UK on 21-22 January 2020, to deliver a programme highlighting the most innovative and exciting aspects of large-area electronics (LAE) - a new way of making electronics which includes printable, flexible, plastic, organic and bio- electronics.
New Project Supports Development Through Additive Manufacturing
CPI has announced a new project offering flexible access to innovation facilities and expertise in commercialising new products and processes in the additive manufacturing and coating industries.
CPI and EU partners create commercialisation support for photonics
Small and Medium-sized Enterprises working with photonics in life sciences markets can benefit from the support offered by CPI and other European partners, as part ofthe Horizon 2020 project EPRISE (Empowering Photonics through Regional Innovation Strategies in Europe).
An OLED pilot line introduces itself: From PI-SCALE to LYTEUS
Together with their industrial partners, the institutes were able to achieve unique results, create and manufacture fascinating prototypes based on the flexible OLED technology.
CPI to accelerate commercialisation of lightweight nanomaterials
CPI is contributing its state-of-the-art facilities and capabilities to a Horizon 2020 project focused on creating an open-innovation test bed for the development and production of lightweight embedded electronics.
Touch in flexible displays: which technologies will prevail?
The technologies seeking to unseat ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) are by now themselves old, at least in the sense that they have been around for a decade and a half. They seem to have been forever in the waiting mode, anticipating the arrival of their major breakthrough. A key differentiator has long been higher flexibility and foldability over ITO. The question now is how will different technology options fare given that the paradigm shift towards flexible displays is finally upon us despite the recent product launch delays?
Next generation smart vest asthma treatment for children
CPI is working alongside ItoM Medical BV and Blumorpho to support the development of a wearable medical device focused upon improving treatment for children with uncontrolled asthma. The device, a next generation smart vest prototype, will benefit from CPI's expertise in the printable electronics sector.
IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe 2019 Award Winners
At the 15th IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe conference and exhibition in Berlin on April 10-11, four companies were honoured for their great achievements in developing and commercialising printed electronics technologies.
BatterySense Project works on development of next generation batteries
CPI is part of a project focused on next generation battery and sensor work. Operating alongside partners on the BatterySense programme, CPI is supporting work to reduce the size of existing wireless sensing form factors by exploiting additive manufacture. This allows for the intimate integration of batteries into the substrates of ultrathin label-like sensors fabricated by roll-to-roll processes.
The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI)
Since its launch, CPI has been in a unique position to work with companies and their products, both in the development, testing and optimisation of product design and in the development of manufacturing processes that can be proven in yield at relevant industrial volumes.
Nanofacturing project accelerates development of innovative medicines
The Nanofacturing consortium has worked on a pan-European nanopharmaceutical project to develop new manufacturing methods and improve supply chain co-ordination to advance treatments for rare cancers, autoimmune diseases and viral infections.
CPI collaborates on smart filter project
The Centre for Process Innovation has collaborated on a project to advance the development of a low-cost, self-cleaning coating technology for industrial filter membranes. The Smart Filter project used graphene and its derivatives to create a coated filter membrane that offers increased resistance to fouling for industrial waste water treatment.
