On March 6th, 2017, StaatssekretĂ¤rin Katrin SchĂĽtz visited the Institut fĂĽr Mikroelektronik Stuttgart (IMS CHIPS) and presented the funding notification for the fiscal year 2017. The Ministerium fĂĽr Wirtschaft, Arbeit und
Wohnungsbau will be funding the IMS with about 5.4 mio. Euros.
Says StaatssekretĂ¤rin SchĂĽtz: â€śBeing a state-wide competence center for intelligent microchips, IMS CHIPS is an important partner to small and medium-sized companiesâ€ť
â€śBeing state-wide competence center for intelligent microchips, IMS CHIPS is an important partner to small and medium-sized companiesâ€ť, said StaatsekretĂ¤rin Katrin SchĂĽtz during the presentation of the funding notification on Monday. â€śThe outstanding competence in nano and microelectronics at IMS CHIPS is supported by its unique technological product portfolio for the manufacture of intelligent microchips and systems of the future. Small and medium-sized companies, in particular, depend partners such as IMS CHIPS since they are often not in a position to install their own research and development capacitiesâ€ť, says SchĂĽtz. The support for IMS CHIPS, therefore, includes a so-called â€śSME bonusâ€ť of around 245,000 â‚¬ for the acquisition of research mandates of small and medium-sized companies.
