Partners

The Flexible Display Center at ASU boasts collaborations with university, government and industry partners, both national and international. The university collaborations provide the finest and most up-to-date research, giving FDC the knowledge needed to continually improve their flexible display technologies. The government partnerships provide FDC with insight into how to better protect the soldiers that protect and preserve our Nation. Finally, industry partners make available innovative materials and technical service solutions that allow FDC to create the best possible product for the consumer. FDC is able to respond to the rapidly evolving technological environment because of these partnerships.
