Flexible electronics is an emerging technology with far reaching impact in a number of areas including flat-panel displays, OLEDs, sensors, batteries and distributed macroelectronic systems and architectures. Printed smart devices incorporating organic and printed circuits, sensors and energy sources will enable new approaches in logistics and consumer packaging. New flexible displays with exceptionally low energy consumption will be used anywhere and anytime.

The synergy between materials, device and manufacturing technologies will be the primary driver in pushing printed and flexible large-area electronics and optoelectronics into large-scale applications and will revolutionize the manufacturing process for electronic devices.
