" We have a number of high value joint development agreements (JDA’s) that require support to ensure the commercialisation of our volutionary semiconductors. With the market for printed, flexible and organic electronics set to grow to around $77bn by 2023, we are now well positioned to fully commercialise tru-FLEXTM and to satisfy the growing market demand.”"
