VTT Finland

The OE-A Working Group Demonstrator illustrates the potential of the organic and printed electronics technology as well as fostering cooperation among its members.

OE-A Demonstrator

Apart from the fact that a number of project teams have already worked together on a variety of demonstrators over the years, this working group organizes the annual OE-A Competition to support companies, designers, scientists, and engineers in developing a vision of future applications in organic and printed electronics. OE-A members can participate by submitting their new products and prototypes, thereby promoting their latest innovations. The resulting demonstrators and design concepts will be exhibited at LOPEC, where the best concept as well as the best demonstrator in each category will be honored.

OE-A Competition 2021 Online

OE-A has decided to continue the popular OE-A competition 2021 as online format. Since many years the OE-A annually launches the OE-A competition to support companies and designers as well as young engineers and scientists to develop a vision of future applications in flexible, organic and printed electronics.The winners in three categories as well as the Public choice award will present their demonstrators in a Web-Seminar on April 15.
