Smart Flexible Electronics



Flexible electronics (FE) is seen worldwide as a promising technology: electronics are being printed on thin substrates and films. This creates new possibilities. Light, flexible, and portable electronic products such as foldable lighting and signage, reusable sensors, roll-up solar cells and displays,…

Flexlines wants to build a state-of-the-art but stable Flexible Electronics pilot line.

That is why the project brings together these leading partners : 

  • TNO (including inputs from BMC/Brightlands Materials Center)
  • imec (including research groups in Leuven and Eindhoven, associated CMST group at UGent and IC-Link)
  • TU / e
  • KU Leuven
  • DSP Valley

Processes and infrastructure for design and production are being developed and tuned. Prototypes that meet the needs of the local industry in the border region are being realized. These prototypes are used for validation and as showcases.

A one-stop-shop will also be put in place. Partners and companies can order flexible and inexpensive electronic applications and count on tailor-made support.

Flexlines is funded within the Flanders-Netherlands Interreg V program, the cross-border cooperation program with financial support from the European Fund for Regional Development.
