The German-French Chamber of Commerce rewarded to Novaled AG, a leading company in organic electronic materials and technology, the German-French Economy award recognizing its industrial cooperation on OLED with the French company Astron Fiamm Safety. The award is under the patronage of the German Ministry of Economy and Technology and the French Ministry of Economy and Finance.

In the presence of the German Minister of Economy, Dr. Philipp Rösler and the French Minister of SME and Innovative Technologies, Ms. Fleur Pellerin as well as more than 400 guests Novaled AG received the award 'Prix-Franco-Allemand' in the category 'Technology and Innovation' together with its industrial cooperation partner Astron Fiamm Safety. Novaled and Astron Fiamm Safety have been honored by this for their mutual developments and achievements in the field of OLEDs (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) for revolutionary lighting and automotive applications.

The German-French Chamber of Commerce bestows the award bi-yearly. "It honors companies and institutes, which contribute extraordinary to the German-French commercial cooperation and to a successful and powerful Europe of tomorrow", says Guy Maugis, President of the German-French Chamber of Commerce and Chairman of Advisory Board of Robert Bosch France.

"We are proud that our skills and Novaled's leadership in the OLED field are recognized by this award," says Gildas Sorin, CEO of Novaled AG. "The Franco-German award is an important acknowledgement of our strategy to develop cooperations among SME in Europe."

The "Prix-Franco-Allemand" is rewarded in the categories Industrial Cooperation, Innovation and Technology, Human Resources and Environment. In 2013 there was also a special category Media. The Jury, formed by prestigious industry representatives like Siemens and Robert Bosch as well as media representatives like Handelsblatt and Les Echos, nominated ten finalist teams out of more than a hundred candidates.

About OLEDs

OLEDs (organic light-emitting diodes) are solid-state devices composed of multiple thin layers of organic materials often only a few nanometers thick that emit diffuse light when electricity is applied to them. Because they are an area light source, OLEDs are a key part of fulfilling the dream of the rapidly growing flat panel display market: paper-thin, highly-efficient displays with brilliant colors and excellent design flexibility. OLEDs can also lead to new lighting products that combine color and shape to create innovative decorative lighting applications and personalized environments. In addition, OLED lighting products have the potential to offer greater cost and energy savings than current lighting technologies.
