My name is Greg Ganczewski, and I am currently working in the Packaging and Environment Department at the Polish Packaging Research Institute COBRO.

The training school on printing of functional application in Swansea University was an amazing opportunity to learn about intelligent printing solutions and see the high tech equipment used to produce and test those solutions. Organisers provided a perfectly balanced mix of theory and practice, and even given us the chance to try printing and testing functional application ourselves. Overall, Swansea Training School was very well organised and its hands-on approach inspired me to further explore the fascinating world of printed electronics.
