The Fraunhofer FEP launches a flexible electronics-healthcare idea competition

The Fraunhofer FEP, as part of its flex+ project, launched a new idea competition called flexMED. Fraunhofer is aiming to collect ideas for applications that combine flexible electronics and medicine and healthcare.

You can submit your ideas until July 31st, and the three winner will receive €3,000 in total. The Fraunhofer team says that they are looking for innovative ideas that leverage diverse possibilities of flexible electronics. They would especially value ideas that contribute to well-being, recovery and cure of patients.

The Fraunhofer FEP recently demonstrated the "night fly", which was developed as part of the Flex+ project. Those flexible and transparent OLEDs are 0.3 mm thick and feature a new lime yellow emission color. The OLEDs in the "night fly" were processed on flexible substrates and finished graphically with screen-printing in a second step.
