    IRT Nanoelectronics – In brief




    invest_avenir_164433Investments will total around €460 million over ten years, 50% of which will come from the private sector.

    Advanced CMOS

    Mastering lithography technologies down to the atomic scale for transistor miniaturization.

    The Core Technology Program

    Three major R&D programs:

    • 3D assembly for increasingly complex chips.
    • Nanophotonics on silicon for faster communication within and between chips.
    • Bridge technologies to enhance system interactivity.

    The Large Instruments technology platform will provide high-level characterization tools for the research carried out for these three programs.

    The Technology Transfer Program

    Speed the development of small and mid-sized businesses:

    • Provide support for start-ups and growing businesses.
    • Facilitate the emergence of worldclass medium-sized businesses.
    • Support small and mid-sized businesses in getting new products to market.

    The Higher Education Program

    Three objectives:

    • Existing programs: Produce 10,000 graduates in 10 years.
    • New programs: Create additional course modules in the fields of management and design.
    • Initial training and continuing professional development: for young
    • Adults with no formal qualifications.
