News (OE-A)

 

After the cancellation of LOPEC 2020, Messe Munich has come up with a new format that aims at connecting the printed electronics community in the age of the corona pandemic, where personal contacts are limited and rare.

 

Heliatek (Dresden, Germany) has won the 2020 OE-A competition in the category: “Best Publicly Funded Project Demonstrator”. The award honours an innovative integration solution for façades using Heliatek’s organic solar films. A record of more than 20 applications from international companies were submitted and the OE-A selected the organic solar pioneer as one of three winners. This year’s competition was digital due to the cancelation of the LOPEC trade fair, the host event where the winners are usually being awarded.

 

Organic and printed electronics has developed into a global market worth more than $35bn. While OLED displays currently play the biggest role, in the coming years strong growth is expected in other applications such as NFC/RFID, sensors, wearable electronics, and in the automotive and medical industry sectors. These trends are also reflected in the eighth edition of the Roadmap published by the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association), a working group within VDMA.
