To which extent are methods of 2D and 3D printing currently and in the future relevant for your company? Find out which potential printed electronics involve for your company to optimize products and develop new ones. In the consortium project “Printed Electronics: The Next Disruptive Step for Smart Products?” we will develop the basis of your decision-making.

Procedure of a consortium project: That’s how we operate

First of all the participating partners will receive a well-structured overview on innovative technologies as well as future trends and developments in the field of printed electronics. Exchange your experiences with a network of renowned partners from different industries and come up with collective issues.

In the second phase of the project we analyze and evaluate your specific issues and applications. Based on the vote of the participants in-depth technology and market studies will be established for the most relevant applications in this highly dynamic technology field. The calculation of business cases for your selected applications, roadmaps and the production of prototypes characterizes the third phase. This will help you to evaluate the relevance of printed electronics for your company now and prospectively. After project conclusion you will have acquired a broad knowledge, know individual potentials and you will be able to make profound decisions concerning the employment of technologies in your company.


Network of experts from RWTH Aachen University

Besides the technology experts of KEX Knowledge Exchange AG the project is conducted together with a strong team of experts from Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, ACAM Aachen Center for Additive Manufacturing and Kunststoff-Institut Lüdenscheid.

KEX Knowledge Exchange AG has started the project with a kick-off meeting consisting of 13 renowned companies in Aachen on October 17th. The project will run until September 2018.
