Benefits for Members

The vision of the OE-A is to build a bridge between science, technology and application and to leverage the emerging technology of organic electronics. OE-A provides a unique platform and network for national and international cooperation between all companies and research institutes involved in the organic electronics and printed electronics value chain.

Creating the right partnerships is essential to companies and research institutes. With quarterly Working Group Meetings, OE-A supports its members with an effective networking and communication platform, fostering collaboration and promoting information exchange among all players along the value chain. Meetings are held frequently in Europe, North America, and Asia to serve the local member companies and create a network for all OE-A members.

Market and technology information / Roadmap
OE-A provides its members with up-to-date market and technology information. Dedicated Working Groups focus on applications and technologies and help create a roadmap for organic electronics. Our expertise arises not only from our members, but also from close co-operation with leading market intelligence corporations and related international associations.

The White Paper "OE-A Roadmap for Organic and Printed Electronics" presents the major findings of the OE-A's 6th edition of the Organic and Printed Electronics Roadmap. OE-A members have free access and can download the new 6th edtion of the White Paper "OE-A Roadmap for Organic and Printed Electronics" in the OE-A member area.
The new White Paper is for sale for non-members. If you are interested, please click here.

Support in research activities
Research and development play a strategic role in leveraging this emerging technology. The OE-A fosters and promotes the expansion of R & D activities on several different levels. We are in close contact with national and European funding authorities and work with them to define future funding programs for R & D.

It is also one of OE-A's important tasks to support and help coordinate industrial R & D in the whole organic electronics sector. In addition, the OE-A initiated a project to develop organic and printed electronic demonstrators.

The OE-A is the perfect platform to find the right partner for bi- or multilateral R & D projects.

Increasing your visibility
The OE-A promotes the innovations of its members through a multitude of media outlets. Our brochure - Organic and Printed Electronics - is just the tip of the iceberg. Please download this brochure or order it at our office. Other documents are for download in our member area.

The Product and Service Directory is an additional tool for OE-A members to present their products and competences on our website. This directory provides information not only about the competences but also about the products & services of all OE-A members.

OE-A arranges member contacts with the international press as well as trade show or conference organizers around the world. Moreover, we represent our members at international trade shows and conferences.

LOPEC – OE-A's Annual conference & exhibition
A key task of the OE-A is to provide the premier marketplace for organic electronics. Following our sustainable and long-term oriented concept, we develop the international leading conference and exhibition for the community. OE-A's annual exhibition and conference LOPEC (Large-area, Organic and Printed Electronics Convention) is the premier event for scientists, engineers, manufacturers and investors in organic and printed electronics. OE-A initiated LOPE-C in 2009, and it is being held in cooperation with Messe Munich since 2012. OE-A members benefit from a 10 % discount on exhibition fees, sponsoring packages and conference tickets.
