Respected experts open the LOPEC Conference program every morning with talks in our Plenary Session. This is a place where the biggest and most pertinent issues currently affecting printed electronics discussed.

In 2016 this includ trends such as new applications in consumer electronics and, above all, wearables, i.e., electronic applications worn either on the body or integrated in clothing. Another key area of interest was applications in the automotive industry, particularly concerning the wide range of benefits OLEDs bring in terms of design, efficiency, and luminosity.

In 2018, the LOPEC Plenary Session had also renowned international speakers.

One of them was John Edvardsson, Strategic Dynamic Marking Program Manager for IKEA Sweden, who talked about “enhancing customer and IKEA value through printed electronics”. Another highlight were certainly the presentation by Francesca Rosella and Ryan Genz, the founders of the British company Cutecircuit. The London-based company is a global pioneer in the development and manufacture of interactive apparel – a collection that uniquely combines fashion and printed electronics. One of the company’s already well-established wearable devices is the Soundshirt: Thanks to integrated sensors this shirt makes it possible for deaf people to feel music on their skin.
