Share Your Ideas in Our Open Innovation Platform
PEA Open is an open project wherein everyone is able to share their ideas for new solutions. Right now at the start of the project, we are gathering ideas for applications linked to biosensor platforms, which you can read about below.
We are experts when it comes to technology, but cannot always foresee the fantastic solutions to which the technology can lead. We believe that these solutions are to be found with you. Please share your ideas in our open idea platform.
In myriad industries.
Printed electronics offer fantastic opportunities to create exciting new products using tried-and-tested printing methods and tools by adding electronic and bioelectronic functions to ordinary paper and plastic. At Printed Electronics Arena, we are primarily focusing on four areas of use for printed electronics: Internet of Things, packaging, healthcare and construction.
Case: Doctors Without Borders
The efficacy of medicines can be reduced by heat or cold. Medicine transportation in warm climates is particularly vulnerable, especially in conflict areas where transportation occurs under difficult conditions. In partnership with MSF, we have developed a printed temperature sensor to monitor the cold-chain of medicines, which is being used in the field.
“The potential of the printed sensor is enormous, and will be of considerable help to the end-user in determining whether the products are usable or not. The longer you are out in the field, the more difficult it becomes to retain the correct temperature in the logistics chain, something that is imperative for safeguarding the quality of vaccines or medicines, and ultimately the quality of care we provide to patients,” says Marpe Tanaka from MSF.
The idea for the printed temperature sensor came in via PEA Open, our open innovation platform, where it was evaluated by experts from Linköping University and RISE Acreo.
