Welcome to the fourth session of our second webinar series
on Tuesday February 16th at 03:00 PM (CET)


Session 4 on EU-Decochrom Interactive Printed Graphics 


PrintoCent members actively initiate and participate in EU, nationally and regionally co-funded projects aimed at increasing the readiness level of new and emerging key enabling technologies. These multi-party project instruments are an effective means for companies to gain first hand experiences on working with emerging technologies, engage in collaborative networks for R&D, and prepare themselves for commercialization. This session look at one such project.

The EU co-funded DecoChrom project elevates printed graphics products to the age of interactivity, and empowers the creative industries with the tools and innovative advanced material sets to design and build aesthetically pleasing practical human interfaces to smart consumer goods and environments.

Join this session to learn how the DecoChrom consortium develops printed electrochromics (EC) as the mass  producible, print industry compatible, ultra low – power interactive graphics solution for ambient intelligence. See design concepts from an expanding EC design community and vote on which you’d like to see go into production!
