OE-A Competition

VTT Finland

The OE-A Competition Working Group illustrates the potential of the organic and printed electronics technology as well as fostering cooperation among its members.

OE-A Competition

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.
