The Leading-Edge Cluster Forum Organic Electronics in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region combines scientific excellence with economic power, in order to make use of the potential for innovation and growth in the future technology printed electronics. It is a cooperative network which currently consists of fifteen international corporations, among them three DAX-listed companies, four mid-sized companies and ten research institutes and universities.
The partners from science and business work closely together along the entire length of the value chain, from the research and development of new materials, to the conception of devices and systems, and the marketing of applications and services. This type of cooperation is unique in the world.
In autumn 2008, the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) named the cluster the winner of their leading-edge cluster competition. This is linked to the funding of the cluster partners' research projects to the tune of around € 40 million over five years.
