Over de functie

The field of Hybrid Printed Electronics (HPE) is highly dynamic and quickly growing. By combining technologies from the established electronics industry with newest developments in the printing of electronics (like roll-to-roll and sheet-to-sheet processing of flexible devices), a new way of the manufacturing of electronic devices is emerging. Some examples: wearable sensor devices that allow for unobtrusive monitoring of health parameters or 3D-shaped parts for automotive interiors in which smart functions have been integrated.


Holst Centre is one of the globally recognized pioneers in this field. In the past few years, a growing number of companies worldwide has decided to team up with Holst Centre implementing HPE in their products.
