Project Call

Calling All Tech Visionaries and ‘Big Idea’ People

Along with developing the next generation workforce and promoting a sustainable advanced manufacturing ecosystem, NextFlex is also focused on accelerating technology innovation and commercialization through pre-competitive partnerships.

Via a series of Project Calls that provide cash awards to proposal teams for development projects that are critical to Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) manufacturing, NextFlex underwrites up to 50% of the development costs of a project. The Project Call process follows a structured selection and rigorous oversight methodology to ensure diversity and breadth in the selection of projects funded.

Project Call topics are generated under the guidance of the NextFlex Technical Council, working in concert with the Technical Working Groups tasked to develop technology roadmaps for FHE. Project proposals are reviewed by the Technical Council and then approved by the NextFlex Governing Council.

NextFlex and its members are currently focused on manufacturing methods that fall into the categories of flexible, stretchable, and conformable with an emphasis on solutions combining silicon and flexible/stretchable/conformable systems with a significant component of additive processing as part of the design.

Project Call 3.0 is open.

Past Project Call: Train OH

The Training & Recruitment Accelerated Innovation Network of Ohio (TrainOH) is a program launched by Lorain County Community College (LCCC) that promotes collaboration with manufacturing companies, as well as workforce and education partners, to meet the regional talent needs for Ohio’s advanced manufacturing industries who are part of the front-line of adoption of Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) technology and processes.

Project Call 3.0 to open Q2 2017
