German-Japanese Joint Cooperation Projects take first development steps
- Oct 21, 2019
International Cooperation Projects between the cluster Organic Electronics Saxony and the partner cluster YU-FIC in Yonezawa, Japan, present first development steps
From 22 to 29 September 2019, 18 Japanese representatives from industry and research visited the German state of Saxony.
The Organic Electronics Saxony cluster has initiated two international projects as part of the BMBF funding measure "Internationalisation of Leading Edge Clusters, Future Projects and Comparable Networks". 30 partners from Germany and Japan participate in the projects, with more than 50 people involved. The projects focus on the development of stable OLEDs on flexible glass and applications with printed 3D and organic electronics. The Japanese participants took part in the International Workshop on Flexible Electronics and Sensors held on the 23. More than 90 participants attended the event in the Congress Center Dresden, with great interest and discussed the new challenges. The first project meetings between the participating partners took place on the 24 to present the first development steps. The main focus was on the handling of flexible glass. In the next milestone, the aim is to exhibit a demonstrator at the LOPEC trade fair for flexible electronics. Until then, in March 2020, some tinkering still has to be done. A project meeting will also take place in January 2020 - at halftime - in Tokyo.
