Van Genechten Packaging, Cartamundi, PragmatIC, SMARTRAC, TNO and imec have joined forces to realize the creation of smart and interative printed objects.
Inspired and supported by the Horizon 2020 program of the European Commission, 6 world leading companies from 4 different EU countries have launched PING (Printed Intelligent NFC Game cards and packaging), a consortium to bring flexible electronics from the lab to mainstream markets.
The overall goal of the PING consortium is the creation of a platform that enables and facilitates the production of smart printed objects based on new technologies. Flexible thin-film electronics and printed materials, like cards, stickers and packaging, make a perfect combination to realise the "Internet of Things."
OUTSTANDING PACKAGING. DRIVING BUSINESS.
