The Croucher Foundation Advanced Study Institute (ASI) on Printed Electronics was held at CUHK in December. The high-level activity brought around 200 academic and industrial researchers in related fields from different parts of the world, including mainland China, Japan and the US, to present their latest accomplishments, discuss and share their experiences, and predict future directions for printed electronics. The conference was dedicated to Prof. Charles K. Kao, former Vice-Chancellor of CUHK who celebrated his 80th birthday in 2013, in honour of his revolutionary contributions towards university education and the development of internet communications.

Research on printed electronics is highly multidisciplinary, combining expertise from physics, chemistry, biology, material science, and electronic engineering, etc. The applications of printed electronics include the manufacture of display and lighting devices, solar cells, biomedical instruments. Through seminars and tutorials given by eminent scientists and interactive discussions, the faculties and students in Hong Kong and nearby regions have gained a deeper understanding of the science and technology of printed electronics, and been inspired to work together to propel greater advances in the field.
