Dear Friends and Partners of the Fraunhofer EMFT’s Forum be-flexible,

We are glad to announce that this year the Forum be-flexible will be held in cooperation with 2017 FLEX Europe forum, November 15 and 16 in Munich, Germany.
This 2 day conference, an integral part of SEMICON Europa 2017, co-located with productronica, Europe’s largest semiconductor manufacturing event, will address materials, manufacturing, new technologies and applications for flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) and printed electronics (PE) and will demonstrate the strong history of Europe in these fields. The joint conference offers a great opportunity to establish a new European platform for flexible electronics, manufacturing technologies and application scenarios.
In cooperation with the Fraunhofer EMFT’s Forum be-flexible, the FLEX Europe forum takes advantage of the intersection of PE and thin silicon (Si) devices. Key technical topics are expected to be covered such as: Thin Silicon, Flexible Sensors, Heterointegration on Flex, Bendable Electronics, Reliability of flexible electronics, Robotics.
We can leverage the assets of the global semiconductor industry to build a new class of flexible hybrid electronics (FHE). Markets being impacted by FHE include structural health monitoring, the Internet of Things (IOT) and medical devices, among others. Specific applications include wearable electronics, smart packaging, smart sensor systems, and physiological monitoring devices.

It is our particular interest to continue the face-to-face contacts with our partners, previous workshop participants and speakers who made the Forum be-flexible a well acknowledged networking event in the emerging topics “Thin Semiconductor Devices and Flexible Electronic Systems for the Internet of Things” over the past 17 years. 

The Call for Papers for the 2017 FLEX Europe / be-flexible forum has been launched recently by Semi Europe. We like to encourage you to send your paper abstracts until 12 May 2017 to the organizational board of Semi Europe: submit your details here

We hope for your sustained support and look forward to meet you again 2017 at an outstanding FlexEurope / be-flexible Forum in Munich.

Prof. Christoph Kutter, Director Fraunhofer EMFT
