The Ministerium für Finanzen und Wirtschaft is funding an equipment upgrade at Institut für Mikroelektronik Stuttgart with 1.15 mio. Euros. The focus is on an expansion of the micro electronic processing technologies and replacement investments for outdated equipment.
"Baden-Württemberg relies on the expertise and performance of the industry-oriented research facilities. This is the reason why we need to fund application-oriented research institutions", says Minister for Finance and Economy, Nils Schmid. "Its internationally renowned expertise in nano and micro electronics makes the IMS an important facility for the technological infrastructure in Baden-Württemberg, particularly for small and medium-sized companies. They need a reliable partner for their demands in nano and micro electronics since it would be difficult to meet their high technological requirements if having to establish their own very costly research and development capacities", Nils Schmid continues.
Keeping updated with the latest research equipment is crucial for the IMS in order to guarantee important technology transfers for the business sector.
