New visions and creative concepts in the area of organic and printed electronics are what the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association), a working group within VDMA, aims to promote in its annual OE-A Competition. Once again, there were numerous submissions coming from all corners of the world this year. The five best submissions were rewarded at LOPEC 2018, the international trade fair and conference for printed electronics, in Munich, Germany.

The signs are still set for growth in the organic and printed electronics industry. This is the clear message to result from the latest business climate survey conducted by the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association). 87% of the survey participants expect the industry to continue its positive development in the coming year. The results of the survey, carried out for the ninth time, were presented to the international press at LOPEC 2018 – the international trade fair and conference – in Munich, Germany, by OE-A chair Dr Jeremy Burroughes.
