sensors to measure your performance, integrated lighting for additional safety or self-heating jackets to increase your well-being. Organic and printed electronics stands for a revolutionary new type of electronics, which are thin, lightweight, flexible, robust and produced at low cost, from organic, polymeric or inorganic materials. The high degree of freedom of design requires a holistic approach in product design to enable this wide range of novel applications.

On Monday, February 4, from 10:00-11:00h, OE-A will organize a seminar at the ISPO Academy. This one-hour seminar will present current use-cases on integrating printed and flexible electronics into sporting goods to increase functionality of garments as well as well-being and efficiency of the wearer. OE-A members will present their printed electronics technologies and how they can enable new features for the sporting goods industry. With this seminar, OE-A aims to further strengthen the connection to the end-user and to showcase the necessity of joint product development to successfully integrate next-generation electronics into sporting goods.
