Holst Centre was set up in 2005 by TNO (The Netherlands) and IMEC (Belgium) with support from the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Government of Flanders, and is an independent shared-innovation R&D centre that develops generic technologies for flexible electronics and for wireless autonomous transducer solutions. Holst Centre has major activities in the areas of flexible OLEDs, photovoltaics, transistor technology, sensor arrays and hybrid, thin-film stretchable and formable electronics. A key feature of Holst Centre is its partnership model with industry and academia around shared roadmaps and programs. It is this kind of cross-fertilization that enables Holst Centre to tune its scientific strategy to industrial needs. Holst Centre is located on the High Tech Campus Eindhoven, and benefits from state-of-the-art on-site facilities. Holst Centre has around 200 full time researchers and more than 45 industrial partners.http://www.holstcentre.com
Brightlands Materials Center is a rapidly growing Research and Development center with the ambition to develop innovative materials solutions that contribute to a sustainable future. Brightlands Materials Center was founded March 2015 by TNO and the Province of Limburg and it is located at the Brightlands Campus in Geleen, The Netherlands.
We develop innovative solutions meeting societal challenges and industrial needs in a limited number of shared research programs: Lightweight Automotive, Additive Manufacturing and Sustainable Buildings.
The Lightweight Automotive Program focusses on Hybrid Thermoplastic Composites in overmoulding and recycling. In this project our goal is process technology development of overmoulding electronic circuits.
