The White Paper “OE-A Roadmap for Organic and Printed Electronics”, 7th Edition, looks ahead at the future and presents key trends, various application examples and challenges in the field of organic and printed electronics. The 100-page Roadmap compiled by the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association), a working group within VDMA, shows findings in the following fields of application: Organic LED (OLED) Lighting, Organic Photovoltaics (OPV), Flexible and OLED Displays, Electronics and Components, and Integrated Smart Systems. The document also provides an overview of materials and substrates, as well as printing processes and other production techniques. The goal is to provide a common ground for industry and science when it comes to planning.
Together with the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Large-Area Electronics / University of Cambridge, the OE-A (Organic Electronics Association) is organising “Printed Electronics Insights: Smart Packaging & IoT” – a day of presentations and a panel-discussion, co-sponsored by FlexTech.
The signs are still set for growth in the organic and printed electronics industry. This is the clear message to result from the latest business climate survey conducted by the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association). 80% of survey participants expect the industry to continue its positive development in the coming year. The results of the survey, carried out for the seventh time, were presented by OE-A Chair Dr Jeremy Burroughes to the international press at LOPEC 2017 – the leading international trade fair and conference for organic and printed electronics – in Munich, Germany.
