CPEIA rebrands as intelliFLEX Innovation Alliance

This new brand identity provides a better reflection of the diverse nature of flexible technologies that are at play both from a development and an applications perspective

6 Sep 2017 | Editor

At the CPEIA 2016 AGM in May, Members granted the CPEIA and the Board of the Directors licence to expand the technology scope and membership of the association to include flexible, hybrid and wearable electronics, as well as rebrand the association. The new name reflects the diverse but interconnected nature of the technology and applications for printable, flexible, wearable and hybrid electronics.

The name "intelliFLEX Innovation Alliance" emerged as the clear winner during a ballot vote at the 2017 AGM by all Full and Associate Members in attendance.

Over the summer, the CPEIA team worked to develop the visual look and feel, an updated mandate and a new website. As part of the transition, CPEIA also revamped all their programs to focus on the five key challenges faced by our Members that we have identified through extensive consultation:

Five key challenges facing intelliFlex members:

  • manufacturing scale up
  • product development
  • global market access
  • talent acquisition
  • financing

These programs serve as accelerators to support members as the industry grows.

With its expanded mandate, intelliFLEX covers several related technology areas beyond its original mandate in 2D large area and 3D printable electronics.

These include:

  • new types of smart materials
  • related semiconductors
  • integrated circuits
  • flexible and wearable electronics
  • smart textiles
  • hybrid electronics and software

As before, intelliFLEX remains focused on products and applications for Smart Packaging, Intelligent Buildings and Connected Homes, Aerospace and Defence, Automotive and Industrial Applications, Health and Wellness, Intelligent Documents, and Consumer Electronics.

"This new brand identity provides a better reflection of the diverse nature of flexible technologies that are at play both from a development and an applications perspective."


"Many of our members were already involved in these tech domains, going well beyond our original mandate in printable electronics. This new brand and positioning helps us build a more inclusive and effective ecosystem to address the needs of the end-user verticals that best stand to benefit from the application of printable, flexible and hybrid technologies in North America and globally."
