ETPN RegMed WG Webinar on Panbio-electronics

On Thursday, 31 August 2017, from 15:00 to 16:00 CEST, the eighth from the series of webinars organized by AMIRES and the ETPN Regenerative Medicine Working Group (RegMed WG) will take place.  A presentation titled  „Panbio-electronics“ will be given by Assoc. Prof. Daniel Simon , the Head of the Organic Bioelectronics group of the Laboratory of Organic Electronics at the Linköping University (click HERE). Click HERE for a bio.

Recent decades have seen the rise of a range of tools and technologies for interfacing technological and biological systems. There has been a consistent focus on animal and mammalian applications, particularly relating to neuroscience, and organic electronics have emerged as an ideal component in these applications. However, it has been recently shown that organic electronics can also be applied to augment plant systems, bringing decades of anthropocentric R&D to the plant kingdom. In his talk, prof. Simon will introduce his team’s recent advances and results in animal-focused and plant-focused “panbio-electronics”.

The ETPN RegMed WG webinars are open to both ETPN members and non-members.  By presenting recent advancement of ETPN members in the Regenerative Medicine field, these webinars aim to improve know how exchange, identification of key European experts and a wider networking between ETPN members (e.g. for collaborative projects). It is also intended to keep webinars open for ETPN non-members, particularly for industrial companies, to facilitate cooperation between researchers and enterprises (mainly SMEs).

Industrial Innovation Information Days 2017

The Industrial Innovation Info Days will be held on 3 – 4 October 2017, in Brussels, Belgium, under the auspices of the European Commission Directorate General for Research & Innovation. The purpose of this major event is to inform stakeholders about activities in the “Key Enabling Technologies” part of Horizon 2020. The programme will include keynote addresses on current and future investments in EU research & innovation, as well as presentations on upcoming challenges in the area of Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing and Processing, and Biotechnology. The Info Days will also involve significant networking activities. Click HERE for more information and registration.  AMIRES represented by Elena Turco will be there.

TRIBUTE Final Conference

On 20 September 2017, the final conference of FP7 funded TRIBUTE project will take place in La Rochelle, France.  The goal of the event is to provide introduction into the building energy performance problematic, to present the outputs of the TRIBUTE and similar projects as well as to evaluate impacts on different type of stakeholders. Click HERE for more information and registration.

The goal of the TRIBUTE project is the minimisation of the gap between computed and measured energy performance by improving the predictive capability of a state-of-the-art commercial BEPS. TRIBUTE has been developing a system able to assist building owners in evaluating and anticipating the impact of the evolution (age, retrofit, occupancy…) of a building through the automatic adaptation of the on-line, real-time Building Energy Simulation Performance model of the building. This is done by accessing both the key building parameters as well as the real-time data actually measured. Furthermore, TRIBUTE proposes a novel retrofit strategy that will be part of the improved BEPS in order to help meet building automation and control regulations, and monitoring.

SWII 2017

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is transforming industry from design and conceptualization, material requirements and advanced production methods to new user applications. In order to utilize the full potential of AM, international collaboration and market oriented research are required. Join R&D intensive MNE:s, innovative SME:s and best in class academia in generating new industrial partnerships and market oriented research projects with funding available from EUREKA/Eurostars as part of the SWII-platform. An event focused on Additive Manufacturing organized by the Swiss-Swedish Innovation Initiative, will take place on 28 September 2017, at EPFL Microcity Neuchâtel, Switzerland. Click HERE for an agenda and registration.

AMIRES will be there represented by Dr. Rudolf Fryček.

IWC 2017

This year again the Innovation World Cup Conference will take place in Neuchâtel on 20 September 2017. The audience will include international experts, techpreneurs and potential investors for an action-packed day with IoT developer workshops, talks, pitches and networking opportunities.  Click HERE to register. Dr. Rudolf Fryček of AMIRES will be there.

The Innovation World Cup Series is a worldwide open innovation platform, which aims to discover emerging applications, solutions, and investment opportunities in new industries with massive growth potential. In partnership with over 45 leading regional ICT clusters all over the globe, the Innovation World Cup Series has a significant impact for all parties involved.

CIOE 2017

China International Optoelectronic Exposition (CIOE), which will take place this year on 6 – 9 September 2017, at Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center, is the world’s largest exhibition in optoelectronic industry. The event is an annual gathering for the global optoelectronic professionals to network with business partners and discover the future trends. It is also a meeting place where you could meet your customer, partners and suppliers under one roof. Click HERE for the event details.

PI-SCALE “Hands-on” Flexible OLED Lighting Workshop

On 25 – 27 September 2017, Horizon 2020 funded project PI-SCALE will hold a “Hands-on” Flexible OLED Lighting Workshop as a part of the ISAL 2017 conference. The workshop will offer a deep level of understanding of the possibilities and technical challenges of integrating OLEDs into existing and future products, and explain how the PI-SCALE pilot line can help with this. Discussions with OLED experts from industry and R&D will offer the attendees the opportunity to work through design concepts and have their questions about the technology answered.

Click HERE for details and to register.


PI-SCALE is a European collaboration to create an open access pilot line service offering world class capability in customised flexible organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) in order to accelerate the commercial adoption of this technology. The project brings together Europe’s experts and state-of-the-art infrastructure for flexible OLED fabrication, and enables companies to quickly and cost effectively test and scale up their flexible OLED lighting or signage concepts and bring them to a level where they are ready to be transferred to a mass production facility.
