Merck, Applied Materials and the Braunschweig University of Technology has been awarded a grant by the German government to develop processes to lower the cost of manufacturing large-area and efficient OLED Lighting for general illumination applications. The 3-year project is called Light InLine (or LILi).

The total cost of the project is about 7.5 million euros (just over $11 million). Almost half is provided by the German government, and the rest by the companies themselves.
