Tampere University of Technology (TUT) is pleased and honoured to welcome internationally renowned and distinguished Dr. Kate Stone on the TUT campus. She will give a lecture on the potential of printed electronics – how to create a 'digital soul’ to our familiar everyday things. By combining traditional printing technology and electronics, it is possible to integrate sound, light or and internet connection to even, paper-thin surfaces, such as packing materials.

In addition to giving a lecture, Stone will hold a special workshop for TUT’s students and researchers. In the workshop, she will present a technology introduced by her company Novalia, enabling the creation of interactive electronics at low costs using easy-to-use software tools.

The lecture and the workshop are organised by the UBINET doctoral training network and the Augmented Human Activities research community.
