OE-A session & Networking opportunities at ISPO 2018

On Monday, January 29 from 12:00-13:00h the OE-A will organize the session Textiles 4.0: Flexible and Printed Electronics for Smart Sportswear as part of the ISPO Academy. At the ‘digitize!’ area in Hall 4, Messe München the OE-A will give an introduction on organic and printed electronics and various OE-A members will share their expertise on wearables, sensors, and integrated smart systems for applications in sporting goods and the wellbeing sector. 
 
Following this session, the OE-A organizes a networking opportunity which OE-A members can join to get directly in contact with end-users from the sporting goods industry. 
 
Printed electronics can make textiles – and thus also sports clothing – smarter, more interactive and flexible. This technology provides the textile industry with new inspiration and enables the development of new products that were first unthinkable. Get up and running with Printed Electronics in Sports!
