MCCI was one of the 48 third-level industry projects that collectively secured €16.5m in government funding to purchase equipment for research, development and innovation (RD&I) as part of the 2023 Capital Equipment Fund.
The funding will give MCCI’s member companies access to both established and leading-edge equipment hosted by Technology Gateways and Technology Centres across Ireland. MCCI, who are hosted at the Tyndall National Institute, is proud to be part of the Technology Centre Programme, a joint initiative between Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland. The technology Centres programme is resourced by highly qualified researchers who provide a unique ecosystem for collaboration in strategically important areas.
This significant investment by Enterprise Ireland in MCCI will enhance our laboratory measurement capabilities for applications that are of strategic importance to our industry partners. It will enable MCCI to build further on our Cryo CMOS for Quantum computing research pillar which is currently a very much in demand research topic for industry.
John Morrissey, Executive Director of MCCI, expressed great satisfaction regarding the funding win stating, “Securing this financial support from Enterprise Ireland is an important investment win for us. It will empower MCCI to sustain its impact in driving microelectronic innovation across a wide spectrum of cutting-edge industry applications.
