OE-A Expands International Network

Meetings in Tokyo build partnerships and address key issues.

More than 70 participants flocked to Tokyo in late January for a working meeting between the Organic and Printed Electronics Association (OE-A, www.oe-a.org) and the Japan Advanced Printed Electronics Technology Research Association (JAPERA, www.japera.or.jp).

Key issues discussed included driving market growth and industry-wide standardization. Attendees were also able to visit Japanese companies and research facilities that rely on the use of printed electronics.

“We need good international cooperation to bring organic and printed electronics to the market in large-scale applications,” says Prof Toshihide Kamata, OE-A Deputy Chairman, Chief Technology Officer at JAPERA, and Director of the Flexible Electronics Research Center in AIST.

OE-A was also represented at a shared booth at the Printable Electronics/Nanotech/Convertech exhibition in Tokyo shortly after the working meeting.
