Developing technology for next generation displays and devices

Sharp Laboratories of Europe is a technology research and development centre within Sharp Corporation. We are based in a purpose-built laboratory on the Oxford Science Park in the heart of the UK. We have been delivering technology for Sharp’s products since 1990 with our contributions including major advances for displays used in mobile phones, games consoles, laptops, tablets and cars.

Today, we specialise in creating new technologies for next generation displays and in the development of new light-emitting devices. Our researchers include physicists, optical and electronic engineers, materials scientists, chemists and mathematicians who have come from across the UK, Europe and the rest of the world to join our teams. Together with our colleagues in the rest of the Sharp family, our mission is to use top-class science and engineering to enable the products of the future.

Whether you are curious about a career in technology development with Sharp, seeking a potential collaboration, or just interested in where some of the technology for the products you use each day comes from, we hope you will find what you are looking for on this site.
