What is the Cambridge Innovation and Knowledge Centre?

  • One of 6 UK IKCs funded by the EPSRC and the TSB with a mission to facilitate the commercial exploitation of academic science and technology in partnership with industry
  • Set up in 2007 as a centre of excellence for low temperature, thin-film processing using molecular materials, such as polymers, liquid crystals and nanostructures, for applications in photonics and electronics
  • A partnership between Electrical Engineering, the Cavendish Lab (Physics), the Institute for Manufacturing and the Judge Business School

Our Technologies:

  • flexible photovoltaics,
  • flexible displays and lighting,
  • printed electronics and components,
  • smart objects
  • polymer waveguide systems
  • liquid crystal on silicon
  • transparent electronics and sensors
