Open Call for Ideas

Open Call description

We are looking for new ideas within printed electronics that would benefit from using an integrated electronic platform that uses printed batteries, sensors and displays. Participants can be people, companies and research projects based in Europe.

We are exploring the possibilities of the platform ourselves by developing three use-cases: a cold-chain monitoring smart-label, bedside diagnostic tests for influenza and streptococcus bacteria, and caffeine and THC detectors. With this Open Call we want to open our technology to industries and researchers, to develop another use-case, that will be chosen among the proposals we receive.

The Open Call application period has been extended and will now close on the 31st August 2020. If you have an idea but need more information on the technology to see if it could be viable, please send us an e-mail!
