Affiliated Research Groups

At InnovationLab, employees of different companies and research institutes are sharing their knowledge to answer the challenging questions of printed and organic electronics and therefore contribute to the platforms' success.

To address the fundamental technological questions of printed and organic electronics, the five competence centers "Analytics", "Device Physics", "Printing", "Simulation" and "Synthesis" have been founded.
These competence centers carry out their work jointly in the partners' research and development laboratory at iL in Heidelberg. The five competence centers interact closely as their activities are based on the research findings from the other centers.
