Laboratory of Device Integrated Responsive Materials (DIRM) opened in Guangzhou, China

On March 12 the Laboratory of Device Integrated Responsive Materials (DIRM), with Dick Broer as Scientific Director, was opened in Guangzhou, China. DIRM is a joined institute between Eindhoven University of Technology and South China Normal University with the aim to developing prototype devices and set up pilot production lines utilizing material input coming from the participating university. Typically organic materials as developed by ICMS and the SFD group in the TU/e Chemistry Department might find their way to applications in the areas of electronics and energy management.
