CPEIA Teams with Industry Partners to Offer 3-day, Practical Program


Reading time ( words)

The Canadian Printable Electronics Industry Association, the catalyst for Canada’s printable, flexible and wearable electronics ecosystem, has teamed with the Printability and Graphic Communications Institute (ICI) and the National Research Council of Canada to teach the fundamentals of printable and flexible electronics (PE).

Through a three-day course, participants will receive high-value, hands-on learning about the design, processes and materials for new product development. This training is a must-have starting point for those who want to get started with PE and learn the fundamentals.

The training program is part of the CPEIA’s Technical Program. The Technical Program focuses on the processes, materials and technical standards crucial to new product development, how to address market opportunities in various end-user verticals, and how to take advantage of funding and R&D programs that support commercialization in Canada.

“This training was developed in response to the broader industry’s interest in adding PE to their product development toolkits for a number of vertical markets, such as packaging, intelligent homes and health care,” said Peter Kallai, President and CEO of the CPEIA. “Smart features created with printable and flexible electronics can power the Internet of Everything. Products can be enabled, at a low cost and in high volume, to interact through the Internet with consumers, brand owners and other members of the supply chain.”

The Training Program is open to anyone. CPEIA Members, as well as Members of Impression 2020, will receive a 10 per cent discount.

“This kind of practical industry training into the fundamentals of creating PE components has never before been available in Canada,” said Andre Dion, CEO of ICI. “In partnership with the CPEIA and the NRC, we will help build the widespread technical expertise required to advance the adoption and commercialization of these technologies by Canadian industry.”
