One of the CORNET objectives is to track the Standardization needs of entities active in and benefiting from the Organic Electronics field. Do not miss the opportunity to contribute to a short (~5 min) Survey on Standardization Requirements for Printed Electronics, organised by the CORNET in collaboration with VAMAS. The results of this survey will steer the future direction of international pre-normative work that leads to best practice guides and standards for industry. Do not miss this opportunity. The deadline to reply to this survey is on 31/05/2019.

Why participate?

  • Gain insight into existing and upcoming standards for printed electronics. All participants will receive a draft report (at least 6 months before publication) summarising the current standards, those under development and a summary analysis of all the input from this survey and direct interview about requirements for new standards related to printed electronics.
  • Influence the focus of future international standardization activities. The results of the survey will directly influence the roadmap of pre-normative activities of VAMAS TWA36 and will be disseminated to IEC and other standardisation institutions.

The information collected and the whole process complies with EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). The link to the Survey is the following:

The CORNET Month 12 Consortium meeting was successfully held in GRANTA facilities in Cambridge, UK. The first version of the Open Innovation Environment Platform has been launched and will be constantly optimized for its widespread population! Emphasis is drawn into integrating Industry needs in the triangle of Characterization, Fabrication and Modelling of OEs.

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!

More info available here.

The Workshop will take place on October 22nd 2018, 09.00 am at the Divani Caravel Hotel, Athens.
The Workshop will bring together Top-class Scientists, Engineers, Key Industrial Players, End-Users, Entrepreneurs, Investors, Policy Makers and Representatives from the National and EU Authorities to discuss, network and establish the Strategy and Policy for boosting the rapidly evolving Flexible & Printed Electronics multi-Billion Industry in Green Energy, Lighting, Electronics, Automotive, Smart Buildings, Greenhouses, Intelligent Packaging, Wearables, IoT, etc. and its role in the Digital Transformation of the Industry.
