ASML, Eindhoven Tech University Expand Research Partnership: Details

Zinger Key Points
  • ASML and TU/e expand semiconductor research collaboration.
  • Nearly 100 PhD students to be trained in key fields.

Semiconductor company ASML Holding NV ASML and Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) have entered into a substantial expansion of their collaborative efforts. 

The new agreement will see an increase in joint research initiatives and the training of additional PhD students in fields such as plasma physics, mechatronics, optics, and AI.

The expansion aims to bolster the Brainport region’s unique position in the semiconductor industry and enhance TU/e’s Future Chips flagship program.

The collaboration, which was initially formalized through a memorandum of understanding last year, will now involve nearly one hundred PhD students over the next decade, conducting research pivotal to the chip sector.

The partnership not only advances knowledge and technology crucial for societal solutions and the Dutch economy but also prepares PhD students to become top specialists urgently needed by the semiconductor industry.

Additionally, ASML will provide financial support for TU/e’s new cleanroom facility, designed to be a premier hub for semiconductor research, education, and startups.
