The 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.
In 2017 the FlexE center announced it has ordered a bespoke roll-to-roll (R2R) pilot line that will be used for R&D and prototyping projects in the field of printed and flexible electronics. In 2021 we posted an article outlining the major OLED technologies developed at FlexE.
