Nov 26, 2014

Enlight has received the 2014 ENIAC Innovation award at the European Nanoelectronics forum on November 26th in Cannes!

The award was presented by Dr. Andreas Wild and Dr. Yves Gigase, respectively Executive Director and Head of Operations, formerly of the ENIAC JU and now of the ECSEL Joint Undertaking that has now taken up the support of the ENIAC projects.

In his speech, Dr. Wild highlighted once more the importance of semiconductor technology as a core European competence, which fully delivers on its promise of innovation when taken up by leading actors along the full value chain; from device suppliers, software and integration specialists to system developers. In this way, the EnLight project is exemplary in bringing together such key actors in a project of significant size (more than 41M€ R&D investment by 27 partners) to achieve results of genuinely high value to the partners.
