The OE-A Competition Working Group illustrates the potential of the organic and printed electronics technology as well as fostering cooperation among its members.
Apart from the fact that a number of project teams have already worked together on a variety of demonstrators over the years, this working group organizes the annual OE-A Competition to support companies, designers, scientists, and engineers in developing a vision of future applications in organic and printed electronics. OE-A members can participate by submitting their new products and prototypes, thereby promoting their latest innovations.
The submitted projects will be rated in three categories by a jury of representatives from well-known international companies and institutes:
- Prototypes and New Products
- Freestyle Demonstrator
- Publicly Funded Project
The resulting demonstrators and design concepts will be exhibited at LOPEC, where the best concept as well as the best demonstrator in each category will be honored.
OE-A Competition 2022
Since many years the OE-A annually launches the OE-A competition to support companies and designers as well as young engineers and scientists to develop a vision of future applications in flexible, organic and printed electronics. This year the OE-A received 22 submissions from 11. countries, which can be viewed here!
