Launched in October 2015 the Fingrid idea competition challenged companies of all sizes to submit their business ideas addressing the topic of grid maintenance development. Which, essentially, means enhancing grid performance, reducing inconvenience caused by power outages and lessening environmental impacts and energy consumption. All while reducing the cost of power delivery.
Printed intelligence in Finland focuses on cost and energy efficient roll-to-roll manufacturing, advanced scalable materials and creation of new business.
The key is to combine materials and processing know-how with applications such as smart packaging, diagnostics, organic electronics, organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), lighting and solar cells. These provide important enablers for the critical needs of flexible and organic electronics – already today.
