Details of support services: 

Business Cluster Semiconductors Netherlands (BCSEMI NL) is a national network of semiconductor companies and knowledge organizations active in the entire value chain of research, development, design, production and application of Advanced ICs, MEMS, Sensors and Wireless Systems. BCSEMI NL is an independent foundation. The BCSEMI NL board consists of representatives of all parts of the semiconductor value chain in the Netherlands. Business Cluster Semiconductors also supports the development of an open infrastructure and shared facilities for knowledge retention/ development as well as the knowhow for industrial production of advanced microelectronics in the Netherlands. Several initiatives have already been launched (Shared EDA, Advanced Packaging Centre, Production Service Netherlands), while other activities are being prepared and will be implemented in near future (Plug&Design Centre & Shared Services & Equipment). The presence of the complete value chain (incl. equipment) – from research, to development & design to production and application – makes the Dutch semiconductor ecosystem very attractive for various international partners and companies. BCSEMI NL aims to strengthen this cluster by stimulating cooperation, initiating new innovation projects and facilitating crossovers projects between semiconductors as a key enabling technology (KET) and various applications in other sectors.

Name & Description (Regional/National)

EFRO - I2I (Innovation to Industralisation): 

 

Innovation 2 Industrialisation for advanced Micro- & Nanosystems (I2I)

Semiconductors, MEMS and Sensors are key enabling technologies that make new developments possible in a wide range of applications and markets by creating greater efficiency, better performance, new properties and meeting quality & sustainability requirements. The I2I Project is building and combining key industrial competences for micro and nano technologies that will be used in future medical and solar applications. The I2I consortium consists of 15 partners, 12 SMEs and three knowledge institutions. It is participating in six R&D projects:

  • Low Power Micro Breath Analyzer
  • Integrated Microfluidic Diagnostics Device
  • Micro Pharma Inhaler
  • Body Fluid Sampler
  • Ultrasound Imaging (Echography)
  • Thin Film Lift-off
