The Flexible Display Center
(FDC) at the Arizona State University
opened on Feb. 4, 2005, which is the result of a $43.7 million, five-year cooperative agreement between the Army Research Laboratory
(ARL) and ASU with an option for an additional $50 million over an additional five-year period.
The FDC Mission is to advance full-color flexible display technology while catalyzing development of a vibrant flexible display industry by contributing to and accelerating development of human capital, tools, facilities, and intellectual property.
