Heliatek was spun-off in 2006 from the Technical University of Dresden (IAPP) and the University of Ulm. The company's founding brought together internationally renowned expertise in the fields of organic optoelectronics and organic oligomer synthesis. As the global technology leader in the field of organic photovoltaics (OPV) based on small molecules, Heliatek is currently making the transition from pure technology development to industrial manufacture. Heliatek's goal is to mass-produce organic photovoltaic panels using the world's first roll-to-roll process for the vacuum deposition of small molecules in 2012.

Heliatek maintains a total staff of some 70 employees and specialists at its facilities in Dresden and Ulm. Investors in Heliatek include leading financial and industrial companies such as BASF, Bosch, RWE, and Wellington Partners. Research and development work, as well as the installation of production technology, has been funded by the Free State of Saxony, the BMBF (Federal Ministry for Education & Research), the BMWi (Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology), and the European Union.
