 The main objective of the Erasmus LLP Project ‘Organic Electronics & Applications’ – O.R.E.A. is to design and construct the curriculum of a two year MSc joined degree in the modern field of organic semiconductors. It has been funded with support from the European Commission.



Research Topics
Ultrafast Laser Micro- and Nano- processing


The OREA consortium consists from Higher Educational Institutions and Companies. This synergy is expected to lead in a curriculum that will provide to the program graduates the qualifications to satisfy the modern market demands in the modern field of organic electronics.

The OREA project has started on the 1st of October 2013. The consortium consists from: TEI of Crete (coordinator), Imperial College London (UK), University of Oxford (UK), Politechnico di Milan (IT), University of St-Andrews (UK), Cyprus University of Technology (CY), Johannes Keppler University of Linz (AT), University of Groningen (HOL), Friedrich-Alexander Universitat Erlangen -Nurnberg (GER), Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser – IESL (GR), Technion Israel Institute of Technology (ISR), NanoForce Ltd (UK), Solvay S.A. (BEL), Ceradrop (FR), Beneq (FIN), Aixtron (GER).

For more information concerning the OREA project please contact Dr Konstantinos Petridis (management coordinator) –

IESL – FORTH will participate in various actions of this project with 5 very experienced researchers. Their experience is mainly located in the fields: (a) organic and graphene semiconductors, (b) laser matter interaction and (c) administrative experience of big projects. According to the submitted proposal the involved personnel are: E. Stratakis (Coordinator) Prof. C. Fotakis, Prof. S. H. Anastasiadis, Dr. C. Kalpouzos and Dr. G. Tsibidis.IESL personnel will participate in the development of the following modules:

- Devices Processing Techniques (core)

- Lifetime reliability of organic electronics devices  (optional)

- Numerical Methods for organic electronics (core)

-  An Introduction to Physical Chemistry (core)

-  An Introduction to Optoelectronics & Lasers (optional)
