The printed electronics market was valued at USD 3.13 Billion in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 12.10 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 22.38% between 2016 and 2022*. The startups of the Mordovian Nanocenter represented their new developments at the Open Innovation Forum 2017 that was held on 16-18 of October in Skolkovo, Moscow. The company Svetcom demonstrated to the guests of the Forum a flexible transparent RGB screen that allows to bring lighting design and advertising to the next level. Technological company Printing Technologies demonstrated a prototype of Smart Insoles for shoes with built-in pressure sensors, which enable to monitor an athlete’s performance in real time. Another startup PrintoSense showed a line of printed sensors that includes pressure, flex, temperature and gas sensors. Visitors of the exhibition were attracted by the unique development of the company Printing Technologies - a conductive stretchable paste that can be used to print electronic components not only on flexible substrates, but also on stretchable with a possibility to stretch the material up to 200% from the original dimentions. Printed electronics is one of the most promising directions of the Mordovian Nanocenter. R&Ds in printed electronics are conducted in a special laboratory that was open in August 2017.
