Getting ready for the italian pilot line of the EU Chips JU

22 April 2024

The European Commission recently launched the Chips Joint Undertaking (Chips JU) under the Chips ACT, which will strengthen the European semiconductor ecosystem and Europe’s technological leadership. The European Chips JU has successfully evaluated the first four pilot lines, including the Italian one led by CNR Catania. This project, called the Wide Bandgap (WBG) Pilot Line, involves several European countries and focuses on research into innovative materials such as silicon carbide and gallium nitride for next-generation semiconductors. These are essential for the development of more power-efficient, smaller, and lighter devices and have a range of applications.
The Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) was chosen as a partner because of its expertise in the development of high-quality sensors. FBK will receive €15 million in funding for the project, which will be used to improve the facilities and technologies in its laboratories and provide advanced support to other research organisations and companies.
The participation of FBK in the WBG Pilot Line is a prestigious achievement and reflects our commitment to the development of European innovations and strategies in the field of micro and nanotechnologies.
