The first BET-EU summer school and workshop on “Printed Electronics: Boosting Innovation for New Materials to Various Applications” was held successfully on 24 May 2017 in Strasbourg, France, as a satellite event of the EMR-S Spring 2017 annual meeting of the European Materials Research Society. The one-day event, attended by 38 participants, mainly members of the printed electronics value chain, from researchers to manufacturers, was structured into 9 presentations and was organized into 2 main blocks, one focusing on markets needs and key challenges, and the other on materials and processes (more on the programme can be found here: http://www.european-mrs.com/meetings/2017-spring/satellite-events/printe...).

Interesting panels discussions also took place involving members of the audience. These concerned current and future aspects of printed electronics, as well as other related issues.

The main conclusions of these debates, as well as of the various speeches are summarized in a report, downloadable for free at http://www.bet-eu.eu/portfolio/project-outputs
