Fraunhofer COMEDD becomes part of Fraunhofer FEP
The German Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, one of the world’s leading institutes for scientific research, decided to merge Fraunhofer COMEDD (Center for Organic Materials and Electronic Devices) and Fraunhofer FEP (Institute for Electron Beam-, Plasma Technology )with an aim to pool knowledge at one location. Starting with 1 July 2014 the research in organic electronics will be carried on under the name COMEDD at Fraunhofer FEP.
Fraunhofer FEP is well known for its expertise in processes and equipment in electron beam and plasma technology, whereas COMEDD will contribute with its know-how in organic semiconductors and development of components. The scientists are confident to be able to offer novel developments in the future as a result of combined competences.
Customers and partners can continue working with existing contact persons in all technical areas. Moreover, the experts at Fraunhofer believe that they can benefit from supplementing of the portfolio and extension in the range of services. In connection with the new institute, all concluded contracts and secrecy agreements of FEP or COMEDD remain valid.
