Network of Excellence in High-Temperature Electronics

Objective

The objectives of HITEN are to create a basic research infrastructure across Europe in the field of high temperature electronics, provide the basic process steps to enable high-temperature electronic devices to be fabricated, and demonstrate the operation of high-temperature electronic devices at temperatures higher than 300 C.

The Network intends to forge strong links with parallel research teams in the USA, Japan and the CIS. The Network also intends to act as a dissemination tool so that organisations across Europe interested in this field will be able to obtain up to date data and expertise to assist them in the exploitation of appropriate technologies.

STRUCTURE

HITEN consists of an executive board made up of four main nodes. These nodes have overall programme management responsibility for individual tasks. In addition, the founding nodes (15 altogether) form the HITEN Research Directorate, from which strategy and initiatives are launched in order to promote the interests of the Network and high-temperature electronics across the EU. Each of HITEN's founding nodes has been chosen in order to provide a range of complementary expertise. A number of the founding nodes also act as national foci so that matters arising within each EU country can be drawn to the attention of the Network at large.

ACTIVITIES

Considerable emphasis has been placed on increasing the number of "associated nodes" within the Network. These associated nodes, of which a significant number are SMEs, are generally industrial companies interested in high-temperature electronics. Some 200 associated nodes have so far joined HITEN.
