Organic and printed electronics stands for a revolutionary new type of electronics, which are thin, lightweight, flexible, robust and produced at low cost, from organic, polymeric or inorganic materials. The organic and printed electronics technology also enables a wide range of electrical components that can be produced and directly integrated in low-cost reel-to-reel or inkjet processes. This enables single-use, ubiquitous electronic devices, new applications and high functional integration.
Robert Lindner started working in the field of organic electronics in 2011. During his PhD studies at the University of Mainz, his research was focused on novel coatings for electronic applications. After being responsible for the management of various international R&D projects in the plastics processing industry, he recently joined the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association), a working group within VDMA, and is responsible for the OE-A roadmap for organic and printed electronics and coordination of the working groups.
