Canadian Printable Electronics Symposium 2015

21 April 2015 - 22 April 2015
Montreal, Canada



Modern technologies such as 3D printing and Printed Electronics, in combination with new funding and innovation models such as crowdsourcing and crowd-funding, are creating radically new capabilities in how things are made and are changing the manufacturing landscape. The result is the possibility of a radical disruption in how things are made. Creating successful business outcomes from breakthrough technologies/disruptions such as these is one of the most difficult innovation challenges. Over PARC’s 45 year history of disruptive innovation, we have learned a few best practices that underlie success in the business of breakthroughs that we will share.
