SmartEEs program closing, but SmartEEs2 continues

With only one month to go, the SmartEEs project is slowly coming to its end after 38 month of project implementation. We are proud to have had the opportunity to select 20 innovative companies and support them to access new markets and grow their business by adopting flexible electronics in new products lines.

We are also glad to have the opportunity to continue with the successor project, SmartEEs2, where we will be selecting 47 Application Experiments (AEs) to demonstrate the transfer of flexible and wearable electronics technologies into new products / series of products, processes, business models and business opportunities.

If you are interested to know more about two projects, check out our new brochure and video.
