The Centre for Flexible Electronics and Textiles (CFET)

The UBC Centre for Flexible Electronics and Textiles (CFET) is part of the Prometheus Project, a Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) funded project seeking to improve human lives by creating advanced materials and integrating them into devices for a diversity of applications ranging from clean and renewable energy to healthcare delivery and service.

As part of this project, ~$5M was awarded to UBC for establishing unique facilities for design and integration of low cost and flexible electronic materials and devices and textiles. CFET includes two labs with state-of-the-art facilities for conducting multidisciplinary research related to the development of novel nanomaterials and devices, prototyping of flexible electronics on plastic, paper and textiles, roll-to-roll manufacturing of flexible substrates, solar cells, batteries and electronic skin. The labs are being established at UBC and many of the tools are operational now.

CFET is an open-access facility supported by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), British Columbia Knowledge Development Fund (BCKDF), and the University of British Columbia (UBC). The center aims to provide services to wide range of academic users from different departments at UBC as well as external academic, industry, and government users.
