CSA (Compound Semiconductor Applications) Catapult is highlighting the collaboration opportunities open to the UK compound semiconductor industry and Taiwan in a two-part online seminar series ‘Seeking Value Beyond Semiconductor Industry: Opportunities and Challenges for IC Design and Compound Semiconductor in the UK and Taiwan’ on 14 and 16 March.
Established in 2017 by UK Government agency Innovate UK (which provides funding and support for business innovation as part of UK Research and Innovation), CSA Catapult is a not-for-profit organization focused on accelerating the adoption of compound semiconductors for three key applications (the road to Net Zero, future telecoms and intelligent sensing). It works across the UK in a range of industry sectors from automotive to medical, and from digital communications to aerospace.
The Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) and the British Office Taipei (BOT) are hosting the webinars to discuss potential areas and opportunities for UK and Taiwanese companies to collaborate in the future.
In 2020, CSA Catapult signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) to advance semiconductor research between the two organizations.
“On behalf of CSA Catapult, I will be delivering a keynote focused on compound semiconductor development in the UK during the Opportunities and Challenges for Compound Semiconductor webinar,” says CSA Catapult’s strategic development director Dr Andy Sellars. “These webinars are a great opportunity for companies who are interested in collaborating with partners overseas, and I recommend anyone interested in a potential partnership or looking for more information to attend,” he adds.
The webinars on the 14 and 16 March are focus on two themes:
- Theme 1: Opportunities & Challenges for IC Design (14 March);
- Theme 2: Opportunities & Challenges for Compound Semiconductor (16 March).
