Tactotek receives EUR 2.5 million EU grant
Finnish 3D structural electronics manufacturer Tactotek has been named a recipient of a 2.5 million-euro grant.
Finland-based Tactotek has developed a globally unique structural electronics solutions, which integrates printed circuitry and touch controls as well as discrete electronic components into ultra-thin 3D injection molded plastics.
The 2.5 million-euro grant will help the company to start mass production of their injection molded electronics solution. The EU-funded grant is part of the so called Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, a financial instrument of EU’s flagship initiative Innovation Union.
Tactotek’s solution serves, for example, the car industry.
“Traditional panel solution for a car is six centimetres thick whereas with our method the thickness decreases to less than 15 millimetres,” says Jussi Harvela, CEO of the company.
Tactotek is also funded by Conor Venture Partners, Leaguer VC, VTT Ventures, private angels and the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation Tekes.
