From 23 to 25 March, LOPEC was held as an online event. In 180 contributions, the speakers of the digital Conference and more than 70 companies at the online exhibition presented groundbreaking developments in printed electronics. Numerous user industries, such as the automotive, textile and entertainment sectors, are drawing on the potential of this technology. In the medical and pharmaceuticals sectors, in particular, a tremendous surge in development became evident.

 

At this year's LOPEC, VARTA (Ellwangen, Germany) will be presenting current projects on printed batteries and the new Generation A4 of VARTA CoinPower. The technology company will also be presenting Innpaper, BEWELL and OxiFlexIT, three research projects from the field of printed electronics.

 

Close scrutiny of basic vital functions supports a patient's care and recovery, but hospital resources and existing technological solutions might not be adequate to the task. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and its partners are developing wearable sensors such as smart patches that are almost unnoticeable for the user, which keep track of the patient's basic vital functions without interruption, sending the information wirelessly to a monitoring system.
