The OPE journal Newsletter for June 2019 
OPE journal
Dear Mr Chung,
While we are currently still working on the second OPE journal issue of 2019 – with a focus on OLEDs & Displays – I would like to emphasise the next big topic that we will present in our magazine: In September, you will receive our very first “Green Issue” focussing on energy, photovoltaics and smart cities. My question for you is: Do you perceive the printed electronics industry as a ‘green’ sector – and does the PE community fully seize its green potentials?
Do you have projects, products or ideas that are truly sustainable? Get in touch with us, and we can highlight them in our “Green Issue.” We are also looking for an open discussion about sustainability in printed electronics, so if you want to participate in the debate, just drop us an e-mail!
Best regards
Martin Hirschmann
