Healthy Growth: Printed Electronics for Medicine and Wellbeing


Next OE-A Meeting Europe taking place in Barcelona (ES) on June 12-13

Healthy growth is what the printed electronics industry has seen for the last years and the prospect remains continuously positive. Especially in the sector of medicine and wellbeing, printed electronics plays an increasing role, by enabling low-cost, single-use biosensing solutions. These topics will be focused on during this OE-A Meeting in Barcelona; all in line with the special topic: „Healthy Growth: Printed Electronics for Medicine and Wellbeing”.

Hosted by OE-A member IMB-CNM (CSIC) Instituto de Microelectronica de Barcelona, this OE-A Meeting will take place in Barcelona, Spain on June 12-13. Presentations in the meeting will focus on local biotech startup companies, interdisciplinary collaboration and insights into the current and future intereuropean funding measures of the European Commission/DG Connect.

In the evening of June 12, 2019, there will be the chance to visit the Miro Foundation, followed by a networking dinner with a stunning view over the city of Barcelona.
The special topic will also be part of the lab tour on June 12 to Eurecat, a leading technology center in Catalonia. The meeting will be concluded on June 13 by an optional tour to the HP plant near Barcelona.

Creating the right partnerships is essential, both between different companies as well as between companies and research institutes. With regular OE-A Meetings in Europe, Asia and North America, OE-A supports its members with an effective networking and communication platform, fostering collaboration and promoting information exchange among all players along the value chain.

About IMB-CNM (CSIC) Instituto de Microelectronica de Barcelona in technologies
Over the years, the research activity of IMB-CNM (CSIC) Instituto de Microelectronica de Barcelona in technologies, devices and integrated circuits based on the traditional Micro and Nanoelectronics (More Moore), has evolved into the fields of sensors, actuators, Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), microsystems and their integration as part of new electronic circuits and Smart systems to give them a greater functionality (More than Moore). The R&D activities of IMB-CNM are complemented with training of students, researchers and engineers and with technology transfer to companies.
Micro and nanoelectronics technologies are of horizontal nature, which allows their application to most industrial sectors. However, IMB-CNM has specialized mainly in their application in areas of great interest for both the domestic and international industrial sectors, such as energy and mobility, health and environment (including food).
IMB-CNM is located in Bellaterra (Cerdanyola del Vallès), on the Campus of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), which is a privileged environment for both basic and applied/industrial research.
