OE-A Web-Seminar Series - Printed Electronics Insights


Special Topic: Smart Packaging- took place on August 05, 2020.

The third Web-Seminar of the ‘Printed Electronics Insights’ series gives insight into the special topic of smart packaging. As packaging becomes more than just an object to contain and display a product, the packaging industry is transforming more and more. Due to its thin, lightweight and flexible features, organic and printed electronics is a true enabler for a multitude of new innovative products in the packaging industry. Printed batteries to power sensors for improved product logistics or cool-chain monitoring, RFID and NFC functionality to facilitate immediate cross-media interaction with the customer at the point of purchase , improved waste management, or even smart blister packs for medical products - these are only a few applications that have already been enabled by printed electronics. Renown industry experts will talk about the latest developments and applications of printed electronics that will drive forward the transformation of the packaging industry.
