Grafietic want to develop smart labels, which will be applied to packaging solutions. The purpose is to explore possibilities such as printed displays to indicate the best before date, printed RFID antenna, temperature and freshness sensors and possibly electroluminescent displays.
The main challenges here will be to reach target price solutions, due to low cost of current packaging solutions, especially for consumer goods. Focus will be on using high volume production methods together with low cost materials such as nanocopper based inks.
A target of implementation of embedded printed electronics is to demonstrate a 15 % reduction of energy consumption in production.
