April 24, 2018

Ministry of Economics sponsors Institut für Mikroelektronik Stuttgart (IMS Chips) with around 5.44 million euros in 2018.

On April 24th, 2018, undersecretary of state, Katrin Schütz, visited the Institut für Mikroelektronik Stuttgart (IMS CHIPS) and presented the funding notification for the fiscal year 2018.

IMS CHIPS has a leading rank in the research and development of new processes during the production of microchips and nano structures. These technologies are of far-ranging significance for applications in key sectors in Baden-Württemberg, such as the electronic and electrical technology sector, the automotive, mechanical engineering and construction sector, information and communication as well as medical technology. Small and medium-range companies in particular need reliable partners, such as IMS CHIPS, since they are often not able to set up in-house research and development capacities due to the high technological requirements. This is where IMS CHIPS contributes substantially when it comes to implementing results and technological achievements in the everyday industrial environment, emphasizes undersecretary Schütz.

IMS CHIPS is one of thirteen contract research facilities in the Baden-Württemberg-based Innovationsallianz.
