Press release: European consortium to test new materials and manufacturing processes for organic printed electronics


  • The research is part of the European MADRAS project which will enable mass production of this type of electronics, known as OLAE, for accelerated time-tomarket.
  • Seen as a viable alternative to conventional electronics, OLAE devices include organic electronics printed on flexible surfaces such as plastic or paper.
  • Their applications range from producing smart packaging, roll-up displays and flexible solar cells to single-use diagnostic devices and printed batteries along with other innovations.
