About CITC

BCSEMI NL (the organization of Dutch companies in the semiconductor domain), TNO and TU Delft have joined forces to create a centre of excellence in the field of advanced chip packaging and chip integration: CITC (Chip Integration Technology Centre). This new initiative aims to enable and accelerate innovation in the chip packaging and integration sector of the semiconductor industry, involving the full value chain including materials suppliers and OEM, IDM and packaging services companies. It aims to be internationally outstanding and to work with industry globally, with special attention to the ecosystem in the region Nijmegen and in the Netherlands. The centre aims to attract talented people and to set up cooperation between companies and educational and research institutes resulting in valuable world class economic activities in the region. The centre will work with established parties and it also is expected to create new start-up businesses complementary to the existing ones. The centre aims to bring talents together in day-to-day interaction and it will therefore not have a virtual character: it will be located at the Novio Tech Campus in Nijmegen. The research and innovation activities of will start in the middle of 2019.
