Printable Electronics program

With a potential to dramatically transform industries and markets, printable electronics (PE) is a new advanced manufacturing technology that enables the lower-cost digital fabrication of electronic devices. Through initiatives such as Canada's Printable Electronics Consortium, the Printable Electronics flagship program collaborates with leading members of the PE industry to conduct product-driven applied research and gain access to comprehensive PE solutions.

The PE program coordinates key industrial areas—including materials, ink, printing, information and communications technology and digital manufacturing—to position Canadian industry stakeholders as early adopters of emerging PE technologies. The program further provides industry with the resources and networks it needs to become a global powerhouse in producing PE items for world markets.
