SMARTEES2: Online event dedicated to flexible and wearable electronics

WHEN: 5 March 2021, 9:00-13:00, online Colleagues from Minalogic and DSP Valley, our partners in the Silicon Europe Alliance, are organising a matchmaking event on Friday 5 March to explore the topics of flexible and wearable electronics (FWE) in textiles.
