SmartEEs2 is an original European acceleration programme dedicated to helping innovative companies digitise their businesses thanks to flexible and wearable electronics (FWE) testing, experimentation and manufacturing support. The programme opened a call for application experiments on 6 March 2020 and set five cut – off dates between June 2020 and August 2021 for the evaluation and selection of submitted proposals. All interested companies, satisfying the criteria, are invited to submit their application experiment proposals.

Imec (Leuven, Belgium), a leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies, presented the first mm-scale wireless transceiver for smart insertable pills. It is a first breakthrough in imec’s aspiration to realise autonomous ingestible sensors that can measure health parameters such as gut health and transmit in real time the data outside the body.

Global networking of devices, machines and sensors is not just a pipe dream, but has long since become reality thanks to the "Internet of Things" (IoT). The "Internet of Things" is about to revolutionise our daily lives. An important prerequisite for the functioning of the growing and increasingly differentiated IoT applications is a precisely tailored energy supply. Batteries must last a very long time and their performance has to meet the requirements of the respective use. At the "Embedded World" in Nuremberg from 25 to 27 February 2020, VARTA will show a comprehensive portfolio of battery solutions for the networked world in the Internet of Things in Hall 3A, Stand 717.
