Not without pride can Dresden be declared as Europe’s leading location for microelectronics and information technology. Silicon Saxony counts for more than 2100 enterprises with more than 51000 employees and a total revenue of about € 8 billion.

In fact, Saxony is also Europe’s largest cluster for organic semiconductor research, development and manufacturing, covering the full value chain starting at universal fundamental research up to high end technological products.

The cfaed research is thus of major strategic importance for the region, as also expressed by about 40 Letters of Endorsement of local and global industry.

In order to not only benefit from but also support the region and its unique close bonds between academia and industry, cfaed has initiated an Industry Liaison Program (ILP).
