Welcome to ISS-FPE|2015

DATE: 29|June – 03|July 2015  /  LOCATION: University of Brescia | Italy

The International Summer School on “Flexible and Printed Electronics: the next platform for Health & Wealth” (ISS-FPE) aims at providing the attendees with an understanding of the scientific and technical foundations of flexible and printed electronics. World-renown scientists active in flexible and printed electronics will present the state of the art, the open research questions, and the applications of this multidisciplinary and exciting field.

The International Summer School will cover several topics: from advanced materials, fabrication technologies and physical analysis to numerical simulation and modelling of materials and devices, integrated circuits design and applications. A session will focus on bio-opto-electronics devices and technologies for “health and wealth“.
