Forging new products in electronics, optics and photonics

INAM Innovation Network for Advanced Materials founded in Berlin Adlershof

Scientists and business representatives of the Science and Technology Park have come together to form a new network. The INAM Innovation Network for Advanced Materials spans the whole value chain from basic research to product design.   

Next to industrial partners such as Osram GmbH, INAM’s partners include the Integrative Research Institute for the Sciences (IRIS Adlershof), Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU Berlin), the economic development company Berlin Partner, and WISTA-MANAGEMENT GMBH. Initially planned for three years, the network’s aim is to develop and implement concepts for the use of new materials and technology in electronics, optics, and photonics, which in-clude, for example, new printing technology for cheaper production pro-cesses, transparent and conductive coatings for thin-film solar cells, or new organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) for the car industry.

INAM e.V. was established following an initiative of the Science and Technology Park Berlin Adlershof, where non-university research institutions and innovative companies have created a competence centre for optical analyt-ics and materials science in the vicinity of IRIS Adlershof of HU Berlin. The INAM network does more than to connect science and business and research and development. It also consists of partners who help to make products ready for the market. They range from the Agentur Pilotfish GmbH, a specialist for product design, to Fab Lab Berlin, an open workshop for development, or Humboldt Innovation GmbH and the attorneys of Weitnauer Rechtsanwälte Partnerschaftsgesellschaft, who offer advisory services on patents and technology transfer.

“Interdisciplinary cooperation will create new applications and, lastly, finished products which will increase the competitiveness of the companies in the region,” says Peter A. Frensch, vice-president for research at Humboldt-Universität. This will be facilitated by the existing infrastructure of Berlin Adlershof, which can be used for joint research and development, and com-plemented by entrepreneurship, start-up, and accelerator programmes, joint events, and showcases at conferences and trade fairs. The INAM network has already successfully attracted a new company to the Technology Park Adlershof this year: “The Inuru GmbH start-up has an inno-vative idea: it offers companies unprecedented marketing opportunities by using flat OLEDs to bring light and animation to paper,” Jonas Pauly ex-plains, who is the designated head of INAM. The Certi Foundation from Brazil, which is specialized on high technology, is the network’s first strategic partner from overseas.
