Open House - The Future of Flexible Electronics, Displays and Sensing: Bridging Gaps between Innovation and Marketplace

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 10:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT (GMT -04:00)

Ontario’s largest R&D centre in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) is opening its doors on May 8 to interested participants from industry working in the areas of flexible electronics, displays and sensing technologies *G2N, CAPDS, and CIRFE*

The Open House is a half-day forum dedicated to linking industry with leading-edge research in flexible electronic and large-area systems. These technologies span the range from 2-D materials, to organic light-emitting displays, lab-on-a-chip devices, and MEMS.

  • Engage with researchers to leverage their cutting edge research to your advantage
  • Matchmaking sessions highlighting the latest research activities in the field
  • Meet graduate students engaged in research that are employees of the future
  • Tour laboratories enabling groundbreaking research that you may utilize 
  • Keynote presentation by an expert in flexible technologies and their application

University of Waterloo’s unique and state-of-the-art research facilities will be open for tour:

An invited speaker, Dr. Joachim Burghartz, will present his vision of *Ultra‐thin Chips ‐ a New Paradigm in Silicon Technology*.

Meet leaders in flexible electronics, large-area systems, and nano technologies who are developing next generation applications in display, medical imaging, bioanalytical, environmental, and RF systems at the Waterloo-ECE Open House. Engage our academic staff and student researchers in a discussion of R&D and technical problems facing your company.  Our one-on-one R&D matchmaking fair is an excellent opportunity to explore potential solutions to your future staffing requirements. Local funding agencies that specialize in industry/academic collaborations will be on hand to assist in making your match a reality.
