HISTORY

In December 1998 Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Ehrfeld in his function as then managing director of the Institute of Microtechnology Mainz (IMM), started an initiative gathering 24 leading suppliers, potential producers, end-product manufacturers, associations and research institutes of the German display community.

This initiative elaborated a strategy for the set-up of globally competitive flat panel display production capacities in Germany. This activity became the seed of the "Deutsches Flachdisplay Forum" (DFF) which was founded in February 2000 at VDMA. In order to improve flexibility and services for our members, we founded the DFF e.V. as a registered Society in the end of 2014 becoming operational in Jan. 2015.
