Abstract:
The annual printed electronics award winners were announced at the IDTechEx Printed Electronics event this week in Berlin, Germany. The awards recognize outstanding progress in the development and commercialization of printed electronics, an industry that produces a huge amount of technical innovation which will be used in many products, and is now being widely adopted. The entries were judged by an eminent panel comprising of

- Professor Iain McCulloch, Imperial College London, UK
- Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gunter Hübner, Hochschule der Medien, Germany

IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe 2013 Award Winners

Berlin, Germany | Posted on April 18th, 2013

A summary of the awards are as follows:

Best Technical Development Materials Award - Okayama University
Best Technical Development Manufacturing Award - VTT Technical Research Center, Finland
Best Product Development Award - Arjo Wiggins
Academic R&D Award - Georgia Tech - University of Cambridge
Best Poster - Joanneum Research

Best Technical Development Materials Award - Okayama University
Okayama University from Japan was selected for this award for their Ambient Conductive Metal Nanoink. They have developed technology to print conductive film under ambient condition processes without the post-treatment like annealing.

Best Technical Development Manufacturing Award - VTT Technical Research Center, Finland
VTT Technical Research Center of Finland received this award for their development of the PrintoCent Pilot Factory. This pilot factory represents the most advanced industrialisation capability and service in field of printed electronics. This factory combines manufacturing capability and expertise in one location to present the unique opportunity to develop new products quickly and effectively from prototypes to proof-of-production level piloting.

Best Product Development Award - Arjo Wiggins
Arjo Wiggins is presented with this award for development of paper substrates designed for printed electronics - POWERCOAT. This new technology turns paper into a powerful, ultra smooth flexible substrate for even the most demanding applications. POWERCOAT has provided a realistic alternative to plastics for Printed Electronics applications while being 100% paper, recyclable and sustainable.

Academic R&D Award - University of Cambridge
University of Cambridge was chosen for this award for their work on all-inkjet-printed, all-air-processed photovoltaic cells. They were able to show that inkjet-printing technology help dispels the skepticism on organic solar cells by opening new opportunities to make cost-effective, large-area photovoltaic modules.

Best Poster - Joanneum Research
The Joanneum Research Center from Austria received the Best Poster award for their poster entitled PyzoFlex - and the world of Human Machine Interfaces.

The next IDTechEx Printed Electronics awards will be held in Tokyo, Japan on July 9, 2013. For more details see www.PrintedElectronicsAsia.com.
