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.
