LG Display announced that it is establishing a new OLED research center at Seoul National University (SNU). LG engineers and SNU professors and students will use the center to develop materials and technologies used in OLED displays. LGD will fund all the projects in the center.
It seems that one of the areas researched in the new lab will be flexible OLEDs. LGD was recently chosen by the Korean government to lead a research project aiming for flexible 60" UHD OLED TVs by 2017. Perhaps the new center will aid LG in that project.
