TNO: Nederlandse organisatie voor Toegepast Natuurwetenschappelijk Onderzoek, The Netherlands

TNO is an independent applied research institution with a staff of ±4500 people and an annual turnover exceeding €500M€. TNO maintains close contacts with universities and basic research institutions in order to translate up-to-date knowledge and insights into practical applications. Clients include government, large companies and SME’s. TNO will contribute to this project via its Business Unit Holst Centre. Holst Centre is an independent open-innovation R&D center that develops generic technologies for Wireless Autonomous Sensor Technologies and Flexible Electronics. Holst Centre has over 180 employees from 28 nationalities.

The ‘Organic and Oxide Transistor’ research program of the HOLST Centre is the relevant activity of Holst Centre in this project. It specializes in processing on large and flexible substrates, in particular using solution-processing technologies. The “Organic and Oxide” program has realized backplanes for a wide variety of flexible display and non-display applications using both organic as well as oxide semiconductors. Integrated with memory and sensors, the same transistor technology was used for making novel products like large area sensors and wireless identification circuits.

Dr. Gerwin Gelinck received his Ph. D. degree in Physical Chemistry from the Technical University in Delft, The Netherlands, in 1998. In that same year Gerwin joined the Philips Research as a Senior Scientist. In 2002 he was co-founder of Polymer Vision, an internal start-up company in the Philips Technology Incubator. From 2002 to 2006 he was Chief Scientist of Polymer Vision. In 2007 Gerwin takes up the position of Program Manager of ‘Organic Circuitry’ at TNO-Holst Centre. His research topics include various aspects of the physics and technology of organic and polymeric transistors.

Dr. Albert van Breemen (male)  received his Ph. D. degree in Organic and Polymer Chemistry from the University Hasselt, Belgium, in 1999. In that same year he joined TNO Science and Industryas Project Member in the Functional Polymers & Coatings department up to 2000, as Project Leader in the same department since 2001 (since 2005 in the department of Multilayer Devices and Coatings), responsible for the technical and scientific content of several large projects on plastic electronics, inorganic photovoltaics and self-assembly. Since 2007 he works at Holst Centre, focusing on organic memories, organic TFTs, flexible X-ray imagers and actuators.
