Joint research infrastructure of Oulu University, Tampere University, University of Turku, Åbo Akademi University and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.

What is Printed Intelligence Infrastructure?

Printed intelligence is a rapidly emerging field of technology, being a key enabler for next generation electronics products such as flexible, thin, lightweight, and cost- and resource-efficient electronics and photonics, as well as functional materials and devices for interfacing with biological systems.

Printed intelligence infrastructure (PII) is established to provide world-class research and development environment to researchers and technology developers in academy and industry. It offers efficient use and easy access to a modern research and pilot-manufacturing infrastructure covering the whole research/development path from (i) materials via (ii) functional printing, (iii) components and devices to (iv) circuits, systems, and end-use demonstrators.
