Current public funded research projects

  • BMBF project BioLICHT: Printed Bio-Organic Light-Emitting Devices: Towards Sustainable Optoelectronics
  • EU funded ("Initial Training Networks (ITN) - Marie Curie Actions") project INFORM: Interfaces in opto-electronic thin film multilayer devices - www.itn-inform.eu/
  • BMBF project INTERPHASE: Design principles of organic electronics: Heterogeneity by volume and interphases (interfaces)
  • BMBF project POESIE: The capability of printed organic electronics: Optimized materials, fluids and liquid phase processes
  • BMBF project TRISENSE:
    Phase 1 - Establishing international relationships with high-potential regions owning complementary competencies in printed organic electronics via cluster-cluster cooperations.
    Phase 2 - Through joint R&D projects with cooperating clusters in Korea and the US, InnovationLab and partners are aiming to build a sustainable global innovation system for printed electronics applications.

Start-up & Spin-off companies

  • GT + W GmbH: The core competences include developing and customising gravure and flexographic printing presses for printed electronics. GT + W are following the approach of a full-service provider, offering systems and equipment for functional printing as well as engineering and consulting services.
  • otego GmBH: otego develops innovative thermoelectric generators (TEG) as an independent energy supply for wireless sensors and actuators. TEGs convert heat directly into electric power as soon as there is a condition of differences in temperature.
  • peptech: peptech is a newly founded technology company with focus on the development and production of functional printing inks, process development of flexible and printed electronics. peptech stands for “printed electronic process technology”.
