The European Commission has approved the implementation of State aid proposed by the Italian authorities in favour of four companies participating in the EUREKA-JESSI research project.

The four companies are as follows:

- SGS THOMSON Microelectronics srl;
- FINMECCANICA (ALENIA) SpA;
- BULL HN;
- ITALTEL SpA.

The objective of JESSI (Joint European Submicron Silicon Initiative) consists in creating a know-how and research network throughout Europe, in which scientists, producers of components, and system users work together in order to ensure a European independent position regarding the basic technology of microelectronics. JESSI aims at developing submicron silicon process technology, manufacturing and design capability for the future. Emphasis will be placed on the development of submicron process modules and manufacturing sciences.

The proposal of the Italian authorities to award aid to the four companies in order to support a EUREKA research project is based on Law 46/82 and Law 22/87. The latter aims at allowing beneficiaries of funds for applied research to participate in research projects agreed at Community or international level. The law therefore applies mainly to EUREKA projects.

The aid will be paid to all companies under the form of a grant not exceeding 35% of the eligible costs defined by the national legislation.
