Project description

Design of semiconductor components and electronic based miniaturised systems SEMIDEC is a CSA project aiming at increasing cooperation between Europe and Russia in developing semiconductor design methods and tools. Russia is one of a few countries in the world to have in depth knowledge and capabilities spanning research, design and production of microelectronics and integrated circuits. Despite these strengths, there were no Russian semiconductor organisations participating in FP6 IST. Meanwhile, EU faces challenges in addressing the research priorities for semiconductor design methods and tools identified in the FP7 ICT WP and ENIAC SRA. This situation offers a favourable opportunity for strategic collaboration in semiconductor design between Russia and EU Consequently, the main aim of the SEMIDEC project is to increase cooperation in developing semiconductor design methods and tools between the two regions. SEMIDEC will achieve its overall aim via a range of activities implemented over 24 months: 1) Assessment of the semiconductor design collaboration potential. This involves mapping Russian semiconductor organisations involved in research relevant to the EU’s priorities concerning semiconductor design methods, tools and standardisation, as well as producing a “Report on organisations and research on semiconductor design methods and tools in Russia”; 2) Organisation of combined awareness-raising/training/networking events in Russia about semiconductor design calls from FP7 ICT WP, with the participation of key EU semiconductor organisations, which are open to collaboration with Russian counterparts. Support the attendence of Russian experts to key semiconductor events in EU and examining the potential of Russia to participate in ENIAC. Producing a good practice guide in Russian/English language to participation in FP7 semiconductor components/electronic system projects;  3) Provide ‘hands-on’ support services to competent Russian semiconductor organisations to build long-term relationships with key EU counterparts. Central to this is: i) support to joining EU consortia preparing FP7 ICT proposals and ii) support to Russian researchers to make secondments at EU organisations.
