Mobility & Robotics - Photonics & the Machines of the Future Presentation by Prof. Ton Backx, President Institute for Photonic Integration - Room Nof Yam

Prof. Ton Backx, TU Eindhoven

Ton Backx has worked the past 42 years both in industry and at the university. He started his career at the Dr. Neherlab of PTT (1977 – 1981). In 1981 he joined Philips to startup and manage an applied research group working in the field of process modelling and model-based control (1981 – 1988). From 1988 – 1990 he worked with Datex-Getronics as steppingstone to form his own company IPCOS (1990 – 1993). IPCOS was acquired by Setpoint and became part of Aspen Tech. Ton was responsible both for running his former company and for R&D in model-based control and within these companies (1993 – 1998). He founded a new
company – IPCOS Technology- to develop state-of-the-art tools for process modeling and model-based control and to apply these tools in the processing industries (1998 – 2006). He was appointed part-time professor at Eindhoven University of Technology in 1990 in the field of modeling and model-based control of industrial processes. He joint Eindhoven University of Technology full-time in 2006 as Dean of the Electrical Engineering Department (2006-2016). He was appointed Vice-Rector of Eindhoven University of Technology with special responsibility for strengthening the collaboration between the university and industry (2010-2016). In 2016 he became Vice-President International Relations: Since January 2016 he has been responsible for research and development of Photonic Integrated Circuits and Systems at Eindhoven University of Technology. He started the Institute for Photonic Integration in April 2016. He also is co-initiator of Photon Delta –an eco-system for exploitation and strengthening of Photonic materials, photonic integrated circuits and photonic-electronic systems related companies and R&D institutes. Since January 10, 2020 Ton retired from Eindhoven University of Technology.

14:00 Food & Pharma Upprinting Food Presentation by Elzelinde van Doleweerd - Room Yam Tichon

Mrs. Elzelinde van Doleweerd, Creative Director and Founder Upprinting Food, Province North-Brabant

Mrs. Elzelinde van Doleweerd graduated in the B.Sc. Industrial Design at the Eindhoven University of Technology in 2018. During her bachelor she followed the minor Food Technology at Wageningen University and Research. She graduated with the project Upprinting food, which is aimed at reducing food waste in combination with 3D printing technology. After graduation, the project received worldwide attention and continued as a start-up with a focus on high-end restaurants. Additionally, Elzelinde is doing her masters in Industrial Design, in which she develops herself on entrepreneurship, in combination with food, sustainability and technology. Her dream is to start a sustainability-focused restaurant in which 3D printing and other new technologies will be used alongside traditional techniques, in order to reduce food waste and to provide guests with a beautiful experience.

Mobility & Robotics - AI and the 4th Industrial Revolution Presentation Eindhoven University of Technology by Prof. Ruud van Sloun, Assistant Professor - Room Nof Yam

Ruud van Sloun, TU Eindhoven

Assistant Professor in the Signal Processing Systems group of the Electrical Engineering department at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). He works on advanced and intelligent sensing and signal processing algorithms, with a special focus on artificial intelligence in diagnostic ultrasound imaging.
He has a background in probabilistic signal processing for ultrasound-based cancer localization and exploiting signal structure and models to derive optimal estimators. After his PhD, this background has become intertwined with artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning, to develop powerful signal processing solutions that efficiently leverage data and model-based signal structure. Applications span from AI-driven ultrasound beamforming and image formation to clutter suppression and super-resolution imaging.
Van Sloun has contributed to over 50 scientific publications and 4 patents. In 2019, he received a RUBICON grant on deep learning for next-gen ultrasound from The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO).

Mobility & Robotics - PV Integrated in Cars: Significant or Nonsense Presentation by Ronn Andriessen, Managing Director Solliance - Nof Yam

Dr. Ronn Andriessen, Solliance

Dr. Ronn Andriessen received his PhD in (Photo-)Chemistry in 1991 at the University of Leuven in Belgium. From 1991 to 2008 he worked at Agfa-Gevaert NV where he was first R&D project manager of new silver halide based photographic films. Later he became R&D manager responsible for new product and new business development of nano-materials like nano-particles of metals, metal oxides, metal sulfides but also nano-dispersions of PEDOT:PSS and other semi conducting polymer systems. These new materials where applied in thin film solar cells, polymer electronics, thin film light emitting diodes (inorganic and organic), inorganic magnetic layers for anti-theft applications, transparent inorganic electric conductive layers, hybrid oxygen barrier coatings and such alike. After that, he became R&D Manager of the processless digital printing plates department where he was responsible for the development of new digital printing plates and its introduction into production. In 2008 Ronn became program manager at Holst Centre/TNO of the shared research technology programs “printed conductive structures” and “large area printing”. Two years later he was involved in the set-up of the Solliance initiative, a cross-border and cross-institutional R&D collaboration on thin film PV technologies by TNO, Holst Centre, ECN, imec, FZJ, TUEindhoven, TUDelft and UHasselt where he became program manager of the industrial driven shared research OPV program. In 2015 the focus of this OPV program switched to perovskite based solar cells. In 2016 Ronn became program director of Solliance and in 2018 he became director of Solliance. Ronn contributed to over 100 patent applications and more than 50 scientific publications.


Solliance, operational since 2011, together with its partner universities, institutes and companies, focusses on the development of thin film PV technologies. The aim is to develop production processes, including novel tool concepts, and demonstrate these at a Technology Readiness Level of 6-7 for: (1) high volume deposition processes of the electro-active and ancillary layers for organic based PV, perovskite based PV and CIGS based PV, both on glass (Sheet-to-Sheet) as well as on flexible substrates (Roll-to-Roll); (2) high volume customized module production by novel and fully digital interconnection processes; (3) (temporary) customized packaging technologies; (4) integration technologies of thin film PV semi-fabricates on components, to be used in applications such as Infrastructure Integrated PV, Building Integrated PV, Vehicle Integrated PV. The available equipment at Solliance is accessible for third parties for (joint) experimental purposes. The technologies developed at Solliance are ultimately transferred to the partner companies for further implementation in production processes and end-products, based on thin film PV.
