Sensors - Technologies and Applications


Sensors are already an integral part of our everyday lives. However, their influence on our lives will continue to increase, in a wide variety of areas, relieve us of tasks, offer us security or simply make everyday (and professional) life easier. Saxony has a rich industrial landscape with competencies in many industries and technology areas. These competences must be used and cooperative synergies created between the individual areas. Therefore, the Saxon Ministry of Labour, Economics and Transport (SMWA) supports the innovation cross cluster network „Sensorik Sachsen“ (SenSa) for the creation of innovation spaces in which exactly these competence intersections are found and used. In numerous events, the 7 Saxon partner cluster offer the opportunity to get to know each other, to exchange ideas, but also to develop common ideas for the future and to initiate new projects. Take advantage of these opportunities.

The International Workshop on Flexible Electronics and Sensors offers a broad variety of presentations on sensor technology with a focus on the automotive and aerospace sectors in combination with technology offerings from the Organic Electronics Saxony and Silicon Saxony clusters. Guest from YU-FIC (Yamagata University Flexible Electronics Japan-Germany International Collaborative Practical Utilization Consortium) complete the program.

Below you will find information about the program, the venue and registration. Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any further questions.

This measure is co-financed with tax revenues on the basis of the budget passed by the deputies of the Saxon Landtag.
