Fraunhofer partners in new Horizon 2020 project Europractice


Imec, the world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies and its partners STFC-UKRI, Fraunhofer IIS, CMP and Tyndall announced today that Europractice was selected and granted European funding as a H2020 project. This new funding secures the Europractice services to European universities, research institutes and industry until the end of 2021. In the new H2020-project named Next Europractice eXtended Technologies and Services (NEXTS), new partners CMP and Tyndall complement and extend the Europractice offering.

Europractice has supported the European academic sector with design tools and IC prototyping for almost 30 years. The NEXTS project will integrate and build upon the well-established, widely-used and successful services offered by the project partners, extending the service to SMEs, encouraging new users from non-traditional sectors, adding new technologies to serve new markets, diversifying the service towards smart system integration and packaging, and support the training of future generations of engineers that will be required for the growing digital economy in Europe.

The NEXTS project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the grant agreement No 825121.
