Academic research can provide major returns for regional industry – just ask Steven Abramson.
Abramson is the President and CEO of Universal Display Corporation, a leader in the OLED (organic light emitting diode) market, whose technology is featured in devices from the newest LG 4K televisions to Samsung Galaxy smartphones.
Abramson will speak about his firm’s growth and the importance of forging a remarkable partnership with Princeton University and the strong technology community in New Jersey, in the development and commercialization of new technologies at this year’s Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM) Annual Research Symposium.
The conference will feature speakers and workshops highlighting the Institute’s investigation of new technologies in areas including: Quantum Materials and Structures, Large-Area Materials and Devices, Optics and Sensors, and Soft Materials for Polymer and Biological Systems, and will be held in Maeder Hall at Princeton University.
“At PRISM, we work to integrate the sciences and engineering for applications that have real impact on our world,” said Craig Arnold, PRISM director and professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering. “We offer some of the best cutting-edge facilities in imaging, analysis and micro/nano-fabrication, and collaborate closely with industry and government labs and other academic institutions.”
The conference, which is open through registration on the PRISM website, will include poster presentations about current research, round-table discussions among technology licensing, venture and entrepreneurship program directors and industry representatives, and tours of facilities including the Imaging and Analysis Center, Micro/Nano-Fabrication Laboratory, Packaging, and Soft Materials Processing Labs.
