Business based on Printed Intelligence is taking off in many industries. The key enablers of these new products are progressing fast. How can you get started and where can you find the partners to realize your ideas?

PrintoCent – an international cluster of 40 companies – has been boosting commercialization of Printed Intelligence and Electronics for over 10 years and PrintoCent members have brought many ground-breaking printed, hybrid and integrated solutions to the market. Today, Printed Electronics Systems, Structural Electronics in glass, plastics and laminates, and Rapid Diagnostics are spreading to a wide range of end applications in automotive, interior design, premium consumer goods, packaging, health and wellness – to name a few.

With seven webinar sessions in January-March 2021 the PrintoCent Community showcases a wide range of products, processes and materials, which enable new smarter next gen products and how to produce them. This is your chance to connect directly with the experts. The sessions are free, but hurry! Each live webinar session is limited to 500 participants.

Welcome to the fifth session of our second webinar series, on Tuesday February 23rd at 09:00 AM – 10.30 AM (CET)

Session 5 on New Horizons for Antennas


The role of wireless communication and non-contact traceability looks at integration of antennas into all types of structures. Multi antenna systems in 3D structures utilizing wide range of RF bandwidths are a challenge to simulation, standardisation, testing and deep understanding of materials. Antennas of tomorrow will be smarter and smarter and will be embedded into everything and everywhere, in versatile fields of application from base stations to automotive, from drones to home appliances, from medical equipment to wearables. How are PrintoCent members making all this happen?

Join this session to learn about Nokia’s perspective to antenna applications, TactoTek view to integrating antennas in their IMSE processes, how Asahi Kasei is aiming at transparent antennas, what Elcoflex is offering in their smart label platform and how Verkotan is testing today the performance of antennas wireless systems and further on creates new tests for needs of tomorrow.
