OE-A Competition 2023 - Call for Smart Ideas in Flexible and Printed Electronics

(PresseBox) (Frankfurt, )
OE-A launches the OE-A Competition 2023. Innovative ideas from young engineers, designers, and scientists are wanted. Participation is possible now. All submissions will be showcased at LOPEC 2023 and beyond.

“Each run of the OE-A Competition shows us anew the great potential of flexible, organic, and printed electronics. From prototypes to close-to-market products, we are very excited to receive your ingenious projects for the OE-A Competition 2023”, says Dr. Klaus Hecker, Managing Director of OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association), an international working group within VDMA.

Invited are all companies and institutes to participate in one or more of the three different categories. The submitted projects are judged by an international jury of representatives from well-known companies and institutes in three categories: "Prototypes & New Products"; "Freestyle Demonstrator"; and "Publicly Funded Project Demonstrator". “We also encourage young researchers and companies to work on new concepts and seek for collaboration. By hosting this competition, OE-A nurtures the market development of printed electronics”, emphasizes Klaus Hecker.

Present your project at LOPEC

Taking part in the OE-A Competition creates visibility for the participants. All submitted products and demonstrators will be presented to the international community at LOPEC, the leading exhibition and conference for printed electronics. A special moment is when the winners receive their award during an official ceremony at LOPEC. LOPEC will take place from February 28 to March 02, 2023, in Munich.

Win the Public Choice Award

All LOPEC visitors are invited to cast their vote for their favorite project of the competition. Visitors are challenged to make their decision for the "Public Choice Award". "We had a very active participation this year onsite in Munich, visitors showed a lot of interest in the competition projects displayed at the OE-A booth”, says Klaus Hecker. He adds: “It is a great pleasure to see the year by year growing number of products close to market. It’s evident that printed electronics has a lot to offer for the health and mobility industries.

Visibility at LOPEC and beyond

Next to a presentation at LOPEC, OE-A also presents all demonstrators with additional footage year around at oe-a.org. Additionally, OE-A organizes a web-seminar for all winners to present their products to the community. The “Winner web-seminars” are highly attended with more than 100 participants on average. Furthermore, OE-A flanks and supports the run of the Competition with press and social media work. “If you want to promote your work and seek international attention for your innovative project in printed electronics, hand in the application form until end of October”, emphasizes Klaus Hecker.
