innoLAE 2017

31 January 2017 - 1 February 2017

The 3rd Innovations in Large-Area Electronics Conference (innoLAE 2017) took  place at the Genome Campus Conference Centre in Cambridge, UK on 31 January- 1 February 2017. The conference programme highlighted the most innovative and exciting aspects of large-area electronics (LAE) emerging technologies, their manufacture and the development of products incorporating LAE. Over 240 delegates from industry and academia representing 130 different organisations attended the innoLAE 2017 conference and industry day, making innoLAE the best conference to get to know all of the UK large-area electronics community.

Conference Topics

  • Flexible hybrid electronics (e.g. combination of organic and printed electronics with thinned and unpackaged silicon devices, stretchable hybrid electronics, novel interconnects)
  • Emerging materials and devices for large-area electronics (e.g. stretchable, biocompatible and biodegradable substrates, organic and inorganic semiconductors, conductors and novel dielectrics, quantum dots, and magnetic materials)
  • Energy harvesting and storage for large-area electronics (e.g. RF, piezo, thermal and solar harvesting, printable batteries and supercapacitors)
  • Bio-electronics for applications in healthcare (e.g. biosensors and electronics to interface biological tissue)
  • Internet of Things and large-area electronic sensor technologies (e.g. applications of LAE-based sensors for IoT, manufacturing technologies and applications of LAE components and systems for IoT and wireless sensor networks)
  • Novel manufacturing paradigms for large-area electronics (e.g. photonic transfer, paper and fibre-based electronics, sheet-to-sheet and roll-to-roll flexible electronics, and novel aspects of metrology, reliability and yield)
  • Smart wearables and stretchable/ultra-flexible electronics (e.g. applications of stretchable and ultra-flexible electronic technologies in smart wearables)



Gala Dinner

The innoLAE 2017 conference dinner was held on Tuesday 31st January 2017 at Downing College in Cambridge.

Reasons to attend innoLAE 2017

Having experienced a healthy growth in attendance year on year since the first conference was hosted; we are delighted to see that our intention to create an event specifically for the UK large-area electronics community has been so well received. This conference provides a perfect platform for you to:

-  Hear the latest results from UK academic researchers
-  Meet with representatives from international companies active in the technology
-  Listen to keynotes from leading international organisations
-  Gain access to key decision-makers in the UK large-area electronics community
-  Network with colleagues at the gala dinner and the drinks reception

Feedback from delegates 

"The conference showed clear evidence of fascinating advances in the field and the roadmap from 'blue sky' and lab research to the all-important route to manufacturing and the supply chain...I feel this conference provides a comprehensive picture." - delegate

"Good balance between research and industry driven presentations, good time for networking"
- invited speaker

"Larger industry participation than last year, good for contacts." - speaker

"Our company exhibited for 3rd year at innoLAE and each year we find new collaborators and partners and I learn something new, which is great" - exhibitor

"Good range of technical subjects" - delegate

"Wide range of topics, good mix of industry" - speaker
