Paul Smith, Vice President of the Xerox Research Centre of Canada (XRCC), based in Mississauga, Ontario, has been named Chair of the Board of Directors for the Canadian Printable Electronics Industry Association (CPEIA).

Smith joined Xerox in 1995 and currently leads XRCC, which is responsible for the corporation's advanced materials research and development. The research centre also conducts R&D in support of commercial clients in the areas of advanced and specialty materials. Smith is a named inventor on 73 U.S. patents and has 16 publications.

“Printable and organic electronics is an industry where the dream of what is possible is rapidly becoming reality as more products and applications come to market from the large industry players,” said Smith. “This association is the right move at the right time for Canada to organize itself and take advantage of this opportunity. Printable and organic electronics is applicable to a whole range of areas where Canada is strong and strategically well-positioned, such as automotive, aerospace, packaging and advanced manufacturing.”
