PragmatIC at 5th HVM New Materials Conference Cambridge

Member News published by CIR Strategy, under Automation / Robotics, Handsets / Connected Devices, Internet of Things (IoT), Near Field Communications, Research (Technology)

Richard Price, CTO of PragmatIC will give a talk on revolutionising electronics in everyday items at the 5th HVM New Materials Conference in Cambridge on 6-7 November 2019. Around 30 excellent speakers will give talks over the two days. Organisers at CIR hope you'll join this conference. Draft information about programming for the two days is given.

Richard has over 20 years experience in technology commercialisation, focusing on printed electronics and materials chemistry. As a Venture Manager at the University of Manchester Intellectual Property Ltd, he led the creation of spin-out companies, including CableSense, Arvia Technology and Nano ePrint. Previously he was a Senior Chemist at Elam-T, discovering 100 novel materials. He is co-inventor of 7 patent families.

With technology from PragmatIC, it is possible to embed intelligent electronics into high volume everyday items. The PragmatIC technology opens up a broad range of applications and possibilities, where the cost of silicon ICs was previously a constraint, enabling the potential for trillions of smart objects.

Day 1 (6 Nov): Technologies Briefing Day then Dinner evening
Day 2 (7 Nov): Innovation Commercialisation Summit Day Location: Wordsworth Building, Robinson College, Cambridge CB3 5AD, UK
