Eindhoven University of Technology is expanding its semicon research. Currently, more than 700 researchers from 25 research groups work in this field and that number is expected “to grow significantly,” TUE announced. The buildout will be partially funded by the 2.5-billion-euro stimulus package for the Brainport region announced three weeks ago. Within this impulse, 450 million euros has been earmarked for education and talent development.

“There’s an urgent need to strengthen the position of the Netherlands and Europe in the global chip sector,” explains Rector Magnificus Silvia Lenaerts. “With the Future Chips flagship, we’re taking our responsibility, together with our strong industrial and academic partners, to make a maximum contribution to this. We have a unique collaboration with the semicon companies in the Brainport region, we’re the purveyor of engineering talent for these companies and we’re home to top researchers in the relevant research domains.”
