Mar '12
Ghent University – Department of Textiles will host a workshop on Smart Textiles and Organic Electronics on April 25 2012. The seminar consists of four parts. In the morning, Prof. Lieva Van Langenhove (UGent) will give an introduction to smart textiles showing the various possibilities for application in this field.

This introduction is followed by a lecture of Prof. Jan Vanfleteren (CMST/IMEC), who will speak about the integration of electronics into textiles. After a short lunch break, Prof. Dirk Vanderzande (UHasselt/IMEC) will explain which new materials in the world of organic electronics can potentially be applied in smart textiles. Finally, a discussion round leaves time for problem-solving and topics like standards, markets and consumers.

UGent, IMEC and UHasselt will join forces and bring together knowledge from both fields: Smart Textiles AND Organic Electronics. The area of smart textiles is a multi-disciplinary field. Knowledge from a variety of backgrounds needs to be put together to succeed in research, but also in industrial applications like product development. To facilitate this transfer of knowledge between the various players, this seminar offers the best possible platform.
