RISE at Printed Electronics USA

A Nordic tour de force in Santa Clara Printed Electronics

The Nordic countries are amassing resources from institutes to companies to set a goldrush-flag in San Fransisco, bringing forth advances in materials science and showcasing applications.

In the Nordic Pavilion at the Printed Electronics Show in November 2018, the leading research institutes VTT, DTI and RISE are joining forces to present their latest innovations – teaming up with several SME’s.

– We are very proud to bring the spotlight to the Nordics, and all the budding technologies and spinoff companies, says Björn Norberg, Sales Manager at RISE, Research Institutes of Sweden. The width of what we’ll be exposing during the Printed Electronics world event shows that the industry is moving fast and in directions we did not foresee. Did you even hear of fuelcells in hearing aids and smart hoof-sensors to prevent injuries in horses a year ago?

The effort comes at a time when the market for printed electronics seems to be shifting gears, gaining traction and when companies increasingly are outsourcing parts of their R&D.

– That’s the general idea with the institutes, says Björn Norberg, to cater for the situation when industrial players’ want to move into “deep tech” but are not really willing to take on the investments in labs and typically with a certain urgency. That’s when we kick in.

This time, the Nordic institutes are bringing some hidden gems into the picture, hoping to act as a catalyst in the Nordic innovation landscape and create business and new collaborations.

– Some of the SMEs have already taken off from the runway and in the Nordic Pavilion you’ll see interesting concepts such as the Smart Horse Lab with piezosensors in horse soles, Light emitting chemical cells for medtech devices, smart coatings for any surface and solutions which address greener production and clean water among other, concludes Björn Norberg.
