Through these activities, also the supply chain for systems was accelerated and improved. Also the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) was highly involved in this network. The Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK) provides financial support for the association's activities. Both associations are well-linked to the main actors in Europe. ARTEMIS-Austria is a member of the Centers of Innovation Excellence EICOSE and ProcessiT. In the area of semiconductor manufacturing, members from ENIAC-Austria actively coordinated the first European pilot line projects. As a result of these activities, the partners not only generate benefits for their respective organizations but also highly contribute to innovation in Austria, thus, increasing knowledge and employment.
The ECSEL success story is based on our joint effort of working together, actively involving every single member. As a result, ECSEL-Austria was in a position to acquire above-average research funds in the EBS area. These research resources enabled the development of our eco-system.
