Paper Abstract

Organic Electronics (OE), named also FOLAE (Flexible, Organic, (Printed) and Large Area Electronics), is a new branch of electronics, dealing with polymers and plastics, in contrast with traditional electronics, which is based on silicon, copper, oxides, etc. OE acts as a catalyst for the cost effectiveness on the market, being an emerging and fast growing field with high potential in industry. Some OE products (as OLED displays) are already on the market and others (as solar cells, lighting, transistors, etc.) are ready for it, being in the small volume manufacturing stage. Europe has a leading position in OE, mainly due to R and D collaboration, and various European projects try to strengthen this position. On these terms, the paper wants to offer an overview in teaching OE for development of future electronic systems, being destined not only to academia, but also to SMEs, professional associations, and research institutes for exploiting the synergies and complementarities of traditional electronics and OE [6].].
