The Research Bridge "Organic Electronics" has been reorganized and expanded with respect to the research topics involved. This is also reflected in the new term "Functional Materials" for the Research Bridge.
Further development of the research bridge Organic Electronics towards Functional Materials
Functional Materials (FM)
Fundamental here are the optimal synergies between KIT and the University of Heidelberg in the area of production (synthesis) and structure determination of new materials, as well as the long-term cooperation in top clusters, such as "Forum Organic Electronics" as well as in the "Innovation Lab" with its associated cleanroom laboratory, as well as high-resolution electron microscopy at both locations.
Together with the Centre for Advanced Materials – CAM at Heidelberg University, which also focuses on the basic research of new organic materials and the MZE of KIT, the mapping of the entire value chain in the region will be further promoted.
