Printed electronics drives innovation in many industries

Different industries are increasingly growing together and cooperating, driven in particular by digitization. More and more challenges can be met much more efficiently and effectively with a cross-industry approach. Messe München actively supports this connection between industries and business areas with its cross-industry activities.

What opportunities does printed electronics offer for different industries?

What applications and technologies are already on the market?

Top international experts from industry and research in the printed electronics industry will answer these questions in seminars and other cross-industry activities. For different industries directly on site at the trade fairs. All activities are organized jointly by the OE-A (Organic & Printed Electronics Association) and LOPEC.
