Funding for Plastic Electronics

With funding limited across all sectors it is worth remembering that calls and competitions do not necessarily need to have Plastic or Printed Electronics within the title for them to be relevant to our sector. Do look at calls within healthcare, food and agriculture etc to find plastic electronics within scope of these other sectors or topics.
