TOPDRAWER (Thin organic prototypes, design, research, applications with end-user recognition) will develop and demonstrate a printed manufacturing process that will be integrated into attractive designs that have been created through consultation with potential end-users. The manufacturing process will be proved and tested within PETEC, that will acquire and install a large-area coating line.
TOPDRAWER has secured funding from the UK government, and will start in early November and will run for 2.5 years. This is actually a followup project to TOPLESS, and is also lead by Thorn lighting.
The partners in this project include CDT, Thorn lighting, Tridonic, which makes drivers for luminaires, Pilkington (a glass maker) and Conductive Inkjet Technology (CIT).
