Next Generation Paper team members Dr Radu Sporea and Brice Le Borgne from the Advanced Technology Institute, visited our project partner VTT Technical Research Centre, in Oulu, Finland in May.

While the first day was dedicated to meeting the other Next Generation partners, Otava an educational publisher and Ifolor Photo printing who will produce and bind our photo book, the following two days were devoted to technical discussion with VTT, a lab made famous for flexible electronics.

This encouraging visit enabled the Surrey and VTT teams to work closely together to setup the first augmented book manufacturing process. The demonstrator for our augmented guidebook will be delivered in the coming months, which will be a significant milestone for the project.

The first details about the fabrication of the book, should be unveiled by Radu in late August, during his invited talk at the SPIE Organic and Hybrid Sensors and Bioelectronics XI Conference in San Diego, California, United States.
