Brief History of IAM

Institute of Advanced Materials (IAM) originates from National University of Singapore, where the academic leader, Dr. Wei Huang, worked. In 1996, Dr. Huang, as a co-founder, established the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering, Singapore (IMRE). Then he built the organic optoelectronic materials team, one of the earliest teams in this field.

In 2002, Dr. Huang came back to China with his team and constructed the Institute of Advanced Materials (IAM) as a "985" discipline innovation platform in Fudan University. In 2006, he together with his team moved to Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications. In 2007, Key Laboratory for Organic Electronics & Information Displays was approved by Jiangsu province. In 2010, the key laboratory was authorized as a national cultivation base by Minister of Science and Technology.

In July, 2012, the IAM team continued to develop new research areas in Nanjing Tech University and proposed a new development pattern which is "a body two wings, research areas complementary, and resources sharing". In 2013, the sub-center of "Organic Optoelectronic Materials and Devices" became an important part of Jiangsu National Synergetic Innovation Center for Advanced Materials (SICAM) under Nanjing Tech University. In 2014, Key Laboratory of Flexible Electronics (KLoFE) was established. In 2015, the National Center for International Research of Flexible Electronic was approved by the Ministry of Science & Technology of China. What is more, Joint International Laboratory of Flexible Electronics (LoFE) was verified by the Ministry of Education of China in the same year. In 2016, Overseas Expertise Introduction Center for Discipline Innovation ("111 Center") was verifies by State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs P. R. China. The establishments of these research platforms are important milestones of Buffer Base for Overseas Talents (Institute of Advanced Materials, IAM) and promote the development of flexible electronics field in both domestic and overseas.
