UK innovation center CPI is contributing its facilities to an EU project focused on researching lightweight embedded electronics.

The LEE-BED project will reportedly run for four years with a consortium funding value of over €10 million. It aims to boost the development and manufacture of nanomaterials, inks, adhesives, composites and lightweight embedded electronics for European industry.

‘The LEE-BED innovation test bed will have a huge impact on businesses across the nanomaterials, formulation and embedded electronics industries in Europe,’ said John Cocker, director of electronics at CPI, said. ‘The benefits of the cost-effective and accelerated development of sensors and electronic components will have a number of applications in the IoT, wearable electronics, automotive, construction and energy industries.’
