Research institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences and Łukasiewicz will receive EUR 50 million for the implementation of a project contributing to the creation of new technologies for many key industries in the modern economy – reported Tuesday's “Puls Biznesu”.

The newspaper reports that European Union (EU) is ready to spend billions of euros under the European Chips Act to increase its importance in the global semiconductor industry. Not only companies but also scientists will benefit from this. Beneficiaries from Poland will include: Łukasiewicz – Institute of Microelectronics and Photonics (ŁIMiF) and the Institute of High Pressure of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IWC PAN).

According to “Puls Biznesu”, institutes will receive EUR 50 million – that is, over PLN 200 million, more or less equally – for the construction of a pilot line of wide-gap semiconductors (mainly nitride and oxide). Half of the amount is co-financing from the EU, and the rest comes from the budget of Poland as a country participating in the project.

– We have just received a recommendation for co-financing the project and now we are negotiating the last details with the European Commission before signing the contract. We assume that we will start construction no later than the beginning of 2025 and complete it in 2029-30. The work involves the adaptation and expansion of our laboratory – says the leader of the field of gallium nitride-based devices at ŁIMiF, Ph.D., Eng., quoted by the daily. Andrzej Taube.

According to “Puls Biznesu”, Polish institutes will create one of four pilot lines as part of a joint, larger project – with a view to the development of advanced semiconductor technologies for today's key sectors such as industry, automotive and renewable energy. The international consortium consists of 22 institutes and universities from Austria, German, Finland, France, Sweden, Italian and from Poland.
