Canadian organizations offer course on printable electronics
OTTAWA, ON—The Canadian Printable Electronics Industry Association is partnering with the Printability and Graphic Communications Institute (ICI) and the National Research Council of Canada to provide a three-day course on the fundamentals of printable and flexible electronics (PE). The organizations say it’s the first training course in Canada of its kind.

Participants are promised a hands-on learning experience on the design, processes and materials for new product development. CPEIA is calling the course a “must-have starting point for those who want to get started with PE and learn the fundamentals.” The training program is part of the CPEIA’s technical program, which addresses market opportunities in various end user verticals, and how to take advantage of funding and R&D programs that support commercialization in Canada.

“This training was developed in response to the broader industry’s interest in adding PE to their product development toolkits for a number of vertical markets, such as packaging, intelligent homes and health care,” Peter Kallai, president and CEO of the CPEIA, said. “Smart features created with printable and flexible electronics can power the Internet of Everything. Products can be enabled, at a low cost and in high volume, to interact through the Internet with consumers, brand owners and other members of the supply chain.”

The program is open to anyone (members of Impressions 2020 will receive a 20% discount) and can be reviewed on the CPEIA website.

Spots are available for the first course—which will take place at ICI—scheduled for May 3-5, 2016.  It will cost $2,995 per person plus taxes and is available in both English and French. Standard enrolment is two teams of five participants for each course. Custom corporate training and corporate training packages are available on other dates.
