The long awaited Infrachip showroom is now accessible, with more than 100 available sets of equipment and technologies.

The €15m Infrachip EU project is starting calls for transnational access so that interested parties can apply for a EU sponsored access at no cost.

This opens up expensive equipment to researchers and small companies across Europe as well as the UK over the next four years.

Depending on the research topic or work, researchers may need to use a specific tool, or conduct research using peculiar equipment to create or test a prototype. Unfortunately, the costs or conditions to access such high-class technology can be a clear obstacle to the progress of research.

The Infrachip project is a consortium of fourteen partners led by Tyndall National Institute at University College Cork and has been funded specifically to boost research and help solving modern challenges by lowering the  access barriers and open the way to innovation & prototype fabrication.

Researchers can now navigate the online showroom and work with the Infrachip interface team will discuss the most relevant tools and access type. This can be remote access by sending samples and obtaining data as well as in-person access to the facility and a stay up to several weeks, entirely funded by the EU.

The project builds on existing research communities, namely ASCENT+ on Nanoelectronics, EMERGE on Sustainable Flexible Electronics and EnABLES on Powering the Internet of Things (IoT).

 In parallel, Infrachip also provides training (hands-on experience and courses) in the access providers facilities, in order to introduce junior researchers to the available technologies they can later benefit from.

Other members of the project are the Hellenic Mediterranean University, Institute of Emerging Technologies,  NCSRD – National Center For Scientific Research, CNRS: FMNT – Micro and Nanotechnology Federation,  UNINOVA – Instituto de Desenvolvimento de Novas Tecnologias, INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory, JOANNEUM RESEARCH – MATERIALS , Myfab Chalmers, Chalmers University of Technology,  AMO, Warsaw University of Technology and Centre for Advanced Materials and Technologies CEZAMAT, SiNANO Institute, Minalogic and Silicon Saxony
