Printed Electronics Virtual Institute

Printed Electronics based on Inorganic Nanomaterials:
From atoms to functional devices and circuits

We develop interdisciplinary cooperation concepts for the manufacture of commercially relevant printed circuits.

As a Helmholtz Virtual Institute we help prepare the way for larger strategic research projects by establishing new research partnerships. We also support the Helmholtz initiative to strengthen the position of universities in the German scientific system.
