University of Massachusetts 

CSSM researchers will work closely with:

  • The Printed Electronics Research Collaborative (PERC)
  • Raytheon UMass-Lowell Research Institute (RURI): a joint research facility focused on the advancement of flexible and printed electronics.

CSSM Complements  PERC and RURI printing activities by offering printing at the nanoscale.

  • Mark and Elisia Saab Emerging Technologies and Innovation Center, an $80 million, 84,000-square-foot facility with space dedicated for PERC and RURI
  • The engineering program at UMass-Boston will provide molecular modeling capability for electronic structures.
