OE-A Web-Seminar Series – Printed Electronics Insights

The next web-seminar of the ‘Printed Electronics Insights’ series gives insight into the special topic Internet of Things. This overarching technology concept describes the increasing integration of intelligence and connectivity into objects, such as machines, automobiles, appliances and everyday objects. Due to its thin, lightweight and flexible form factor, organic and printed electronics provides the ideal technological properties to integrate these intelligent features into any kind of object, regardless of shape and size. Flexible sensors, temperature loggers, smart objects that communicate via RFID or NFC protocols and smart labels that include electrochromic displays are only a few examples of applications enabled by printed electronics. In this web-seminar renown industry experts will present the latest developments and applications of printed electronics that will drive forward the evolution of the Internet of Things.

About OE-A Web-Seminar Series

Printed electronics is a key enabling technology, associated with features like thin, lightweight, flexible, robust and produced at low cost. These characteristics facilitate individualized product solutions without compromising the design and thus turn it into a true enabler of new innovative applications for a variety of major industry sectors.

The impact of Covid-19 has accelerated the digital transformation of the world we are living and working in. OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association) now expands its services by offering an online ‘Printed Electronics Insights’ Web-Seminar series, so that you can stay up to date on the latest flexible and printed electronics developments from any place you are currently based. These Web-Seminars aim to strengthen the voice of printed electronics, further reinforce the understanding of the technology’s huge potential for future applications and to foster collaborations within the industry.

The Web-Seminar series aims to highlight recent printed electronics product developments achieved in key industry sectors like e.g. automotive, smart buildings, healthcare, smart packaging, IoT and consumer electronics. In each of these fast-moving one-hour Web- Seminars you will learn about a special topic. Each topic is dedicated to one industry sector with experts discussing the latest developments and use cases along with the OE-A sharing knowledge from the recently published White Paper ‘OE-A Roadmap for Organic and Printed Electronics’. Furthermore, there will be a special Web-Seminar co-organized by the OE-A and the High Tech Campus Eindhoven which will highlight the importance of diversity for technical product development and for further growth of the industry.
