FlexE Centre

FlexE Centre logoThe National Centre for Flexible Electronics (FlexE) was established in 2014 at the Indian Institute of Technology in Kanpur. The centre aims to bring together Indian academia, industry and public research organizations for research and development of large area flexible electronics.

The FlexE center develops OLED lighting and OLED signage applications and is collaborating with industrial partners in both fields. The center explores evaporation, printing and hybrid processing for OLED production.

CEA-Leti

CEA-Leti logoLeti is a French research institute that is part of CEA (a government-funded technological research organisation). Leti is a large institute with over 2,500 employees and it has an active OLED research.

The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI)

CPI logoThe Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) is a UK based R&D institute that helps companies develop and scale manufacturing processes. CPI caters for the pharma, food, chemical, energy, transportation and printable electronics markets. It is a non-profit institute funded by the UK government, the private sector (through contract R&D services) and matched-funding EU projects.

CPI hosts UK's printed electronics technology center which includes an OLED/OPV prototyping line called LACE (built by MBraun) that can produce up to 20 samples per day with a panel size from 100mm to 200mm square. The line has slot-die and spin coating modules, metal and organic evaporation and encapsulation and enables deposition of OLED materials.

ITRI

Taiwan's ITRI (Industrial Technology Research Institute) is a national research organization, with a mission of conducting technological research, promoting industrial development, creating economic value and improving social welfare for Taiwan. ITRI, founded in 1973, is the largest applied technology R&D institution in Taiwan.

Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (Fraunhofer IPMS)

Fraunhofer IPMS LogoThe Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (Fraunhofer IPMS) has over 200 employees, doing research in electronic, mechanical and optical components and their integration into devices and systems.

The Fraunhofer IPMS has been working on OLED since 2000, and in 2009 launched a new department called COMEDD (the Center for Organics, Materials and Electronic Devices Dresden) to handle its OLED research and pilot fabrication. COMEDD was turned into an independent Fraunhofer Institute in 2012 and now it is a business unit at Fraunhofer FEP.

Fraunhofer FEP

Fraunhofer FEP logoFraunhofer FEP (The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology) is a research institute that focuses on innovative solutions in the fields of vacuum coating, surface treatment and organic semi­conductors.

The core competences technologies for the organic electronics and IC/system design are electron beam technology, sputtering, plasma-activated deposition and high-rate PECVD. The Fraunhofer FEP offers a wide range of possibilities for research, development and pilot production, especially for OLED microdisplays, organic and inorganic sensors, optical filters and flexible OLED lighting as well as the processing, sterilization, structuring and refining of surfaces.

Holst Centre

Holst Centre was setup in 2005 by IMEC (Belgium) and TNO (Holland), with government support. The center is located in Eindhoven, and has around 200 employees and over 20 industrial partners.
