Plastic Logic to expand research partnership with Leibniz Institute

Apparently they've decided to take a page from the grad student's handbook: if you can't cope with the market, stay in school. /jk

EETimes are reporting that PlasticLogic and the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research in Dresden, Germany will expand their collaboration. The research, partially funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, will focus on organic electronic components and supporting the development of organic dielectric materials. The partnership will run for another 3 years.

PlasticLogic are the company behind the Que, an ereader that was first announced at CES and then canceled before release. (I would say it was the first victim of the iPad.) The Que was based on PL's proprietary research, and that research is  what they will be working on with the Leibniz Institute.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
