SEMI also manages these flexible electronics efforts
The Nano-Bio Materials Consortium (NBMC), a SEMI strategic association partner, was founded to bring together scientists, engineers and business development professionals from industry, government and universities to collaboratively initiate research and development of electronic technologies to improve human performance monitoring and performance augmentation. The goal is to proactively build an ecosystem that can drive healthcare and medical electronics innovation towards products that serve society faster.
NextFlex is a public-private consortium of companies, academic institutions, nonprofits and governments with a mission to advance US manufacturing of flexible hybrid electronics. NextFlex encourages investment in the manufacturing ecosystem for this exciting technology, in return for receiving intellectual property, new product ideas and partnering opportunities. *
