At the 7th Korea-EU NanoWorkshop Dr. Argiris Laskarakis presented an overview of the activities, pilot lines and in-line characterization facilities for Organic & Printed Electronics in Greece.

He outlined the connection of OEs characterization, modelling and manufacturing data to industry applications (automotive, energy and construction) which is achieved in the Open Innovation Environment Platform being developed in the Horizon 2020 Project CORNET. The optimization of the manufacturing processes of Organic & Printed Electronics devices taking place in the Horizon 2020 Project Smartline were also thoroughly outlined.

CORNET met with its sister Horizon 2020 Open Innovation Environment Projects OYSTER and MMAMA at the 7th Korea-EU NanoWorkshop, in Seoul. The 3 OIE Projects worked on aligning their actions in the triangle of modelling, characterisation and manufacturing in order to have a multiplied effect. A joint Workshop will be co-organized by the 3 Projects to present their activities, promote the OIE and connect with industrial partners for the faster market uptake of their innovations. More on the joint Workshop will be announced soon.

SmartLine's 12th month Consortium Meeting took place at Divani Caravel Hotel, in Athens, on October 23rd, with participation of AUTh, CRF, LayTec, Aixtron, IBS, Suragus and OET.

CORNET is featured in European Commission’s CORDIS news article as majorly optimizing manufacturing in the Organic Large Area Electronics sector together with the H2020 Factories of the Future SmartLine Project (

The news article is highlighting how Printed Solar Cells are transforming Electronics' Manufacturing, and some of the fascinating advantages Organic Electronics acquire, which makes them ideal for implementation in existing and new consumer products in a wide range of areas.

In the same article CORNET’s partner - OET - record of a 7.4% efficiency for a fully Roll-to-Roll Printed OPV and the aspiration to achieve 9 % efficiency by 2021 are mentioned!
