The 5E Contest Award Ceremony was held on the occasion of the Smart Systems Integration Conference virtual edition, 27 April 2021! 🎇

The 5E Contest was organised in the framework of the 5E Project and wants to highlight the importance of outstanding electronics products in Europe and celebrate their excellence in the areas of nano-electronics (NE)flexible-organic and printed electronics (FOPE) and electronic smart systems (ESS). The aim of this initiative is to provide electronics innovators with:

  • Public recognition for their value, innovative contribution and impact at European level.
  • Support, visibility, promotion and dissemination through all project channels.

The Contest was free of charge and all-inclusive and applications were opened to all electronics innovators based in Europe: Start-ups, SMEs, LEs, RTOs, academia, EU-funded project consortia, but also user communities and the wider public.

The 5E consortium received in total 33 applications from 10 different countries! All the applications have been evaluated by 8 external evaluators representing the European Electronics Industrial Associations.
