Infineon Technologies Austria – Part of IPCEI Microelectronics
Infineon’s power semiconductors are deployed in key markets such as automotive, energy, digital and industrial equipment. These power electronics solutions also drive innovation in environmental sustainability, energy-efficiency and reduction of CO2 emissions.
Infineon’s IPCEI spillover activities include the following areas:
- STEM education and talent
Infineon Austria will actively involve educational institutions and STEM talent, from pupils to PhDs.
- Research and development
Induced by IPCEI, Infineon Austria will support universities’ research and development activities across Europe.
- Industry collaboration across value chains
Infineon Austria will strengthen its collaboration with SMEs, startups and large companies beyond the IPCEI consortium and create positive spillover effects.
Infineon’s IPCEI spillover-activities will spread across Europe with a focus on Eastern and Southeastern European countries.
About IPCEI Microelectronics
The Important Project of Common European Interest on Microelectronics (IPCEI) is underpinning Europe’s microelectronics industry and is geared towards advancing microelectronics technology across the EU. The IPCEI Microelectronics was approved by the European Commission in December 2018 and will run until March 2024.
The IPCEI Microelectronics features projects with a dedicated focus on research and development as well as First Industrial Deployment (FID) in the following five fields of technology:
- energy-efficient chips
- power semiconductors
- advanced optical equipment and
- compound materials
The IPCEI Microelectronics partnership includes 32 companies as well as research & technology organizations from Austria, France, Germany, Italy and the UK. The benefits of the project will be shared beyond the IPCEI consortium, and the knowledge created in the project will be beneficial to organizations across Europe. It will create positive spillover effects across the semiconductor value chain and in other sectors.
This work is funded by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Digital and Economic Affairs, and implemented by Austria Wirschaftsservice (aws) and the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) in the frame of the Important Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI) on Microelectronics. The IPCEI on Microelectronics is also funded by Public Authorities from Germany, France, Italy and U.K.
