Introductory Workshop in Modern Print Manufacturing Techniques

Wales Ireland Network for Innovative Photovoltaic Technologies (WIN-IPT) Workshop

14th May 2013 09:15 - 17:00

College of Engineering - Swansea University

The current developments in plastic electronics and functional materials are leading to a growing commercial and scientific interest in the application of printing technologies and fluid processing in low-cost electronic devices such as thin film transistors, solar cells, RFID, sensors, batteries and their integration into smart systems.

This workshop will cover printing technologies such as screen, offset lithography, gravure, flexography, pad and inkjet that are common to the graphic arts industry and can be deployed for the mass production of low-cost functional electronic devices. The idea of the workshop is to give an introduction to modern print manufacturing techniques for academics and industry, and to provide the opportunity to discuss research ideas and collaboration in the Photovoltaic and integrated smart systems field.

There is no cost for companies wishing to attend within the INTERREG region – West Wales (use code: "interreg" at the checkout).
For companies outside this region the cost is £250.00
