Organic and Large Area Electronics

Basic Information


Organic & large area electronics (also known as plastic electronics, printed electronics or organic electronics) allows electronic circuits and devices to be produced using relatively low cost printing processes onto any surface, whether rigid or flexible, and over large areas. It will lead to the creation of whole new generations of products such as conformable and rollable displays, large area efficient lighting, low cost solar cells, low-cost RFIDs and memories, flexible and environmental friendly batteries, and others.
The objectives of this Collaborative Action is as follows:
1. To stimulate the technology and business relationships within the European OLAE community, removing barriers to industrialisation.
2. To contribute to knowledge and technology transfer from "lab to fab", thus significantly accelerating the speed of innovation and industrial development of OLAE in Europe
3. To enhance the supply chain, by improving materials and processes and substantially advancing the potential for new business cases in OLAE.
4. To stimulate collaboration between European enterprises, universities and R&D Centres.
