Industry Engagement

Our mission is to deliver economic impact through microelectronics research excellence. Our close engagement with industry ensures that we remain focused on delivering results aligned to its needs. This has resulted in new (RD&I) opportunities for Ireland which in turn creates jobs in high tech semiconductor sector.

Our diverse and multidisciplinary ecosystem continues to drive innovation and inward investment with the support of IDA and Enterprise Ireland.


Our partner companies have announced over 1,000 jobs in the last five years, enabled by our research staff transferring to industry.
