Printed Electronics Europe is Europe's largest event on printed, thin film and organic electronics. It is being held in Dresden, a fast growing centre of excellence. The conference features world class speakers - with many exclusives - and the largest exhibition on the topic, with more than 60 exhibitors. The event also has six optional Masterclasses with numerous other activities co-located alongside. Join visits to several of the leading local organizations active in the subject. For those new to this sector or already involved, this is the must attend event.


A full range of devices, materials and production technologies will be explained by best-in-class speakers, with many first announcements. Samples and demonstrations will be available and many subjects will be aired for the first time. There will be sessions on the latest breakthroughs in electronics on paper and on many new types of smart skin patch for example and photovoltaics beyond silicon.
