UK Semicon Infrastructure Workshops

 As part of the government’s National Semiconductor Strategy, the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT) has commissioned a study led by IFM to understand the technical and economic feasibility of developing specific semiconductor infrastructure to support commercial R&D, grow the UK semiconductor sector and contribute to supply chain resilience. The study will present proposals and inform the business case for a possible government-supported initiative to boost innovation in areas of the semiconductor sector where the UK has, or could gain, strategic advantage. There are four key capabilities under evaluation:              

  • Silicon prototyping and low volume piloting         
  • Advanced packaging       
  • Compound semiconductor open-access foundry                 
  • Access to EDA tools and design IP   

A series of workshops will take place in July to assess where the specific focus of that investment should be building on the results from the recent surveys identifying user needs and existing capabilities.

  • One Face-to-face workshop covering all four capabilities on Friday 14 July 2023 in Sheffield from 10.30-15.30                 
  • Four online workshops on 18, 19, 20 and 21 July 2023 from 10.00-13.00 for each of the four capabilities. 

Please register to participate  as soon as possible.
