$250 million from SRC announced by Dr. Todd Younkin goes to create multidisciplinary centers for semiconductor research at seven universities
SRC, headed by Dr. Todd Younkin is a world-renowned, high technology-based consortium that serves as a crossroads of collaboration between technology companies, academia, government agencies, and SRC’s highly regarded engineers and scientists.
Through its interdisciplinary research programs, SRC plays an indispensable role in addressing global challenges, using research and development strategies, and advanced tools and technologies. Members of SRC work synergistically together, gain access to research results, fundamental IP, and highly experienced students to compete in the global marketplace and build the workforce of tomorrow.
More than 20 premier semiconductor companies are members of SRC, partnering with more than 100 universities and multiple government agencies. They manage three programs with a combined 55 research topics and more than 500 research projects carried out by more than 1,200 SRC-sponsored students.
SRC has a rich history of success. Since 1982, SRC has funded more than $2B in research, built a semiconductor workforce by sponsoring more than 12,000 graduate students, and provided over 700 patents to member companies. Through a three-tiered approach, we drive critical semiconductor innovations for future generations, while building a diverse, inclusive, and highly trained workforce for tomorrow.
For almost 40 years, SRC and its members have assembled the best university researchers while educating an elite workforce of talented graduate students—in science, engineering and technology. SRC graduates accrue a competitive advantage over their non-SRC counterparts, and SRC member organizations secure early access to an expanding set of solutions addressing their deepest technical challenges.
$250 million to the Joint University Microelectronics Program, which will create multidisciplinary centers for semiconductor research at seven universities in the United States.
The Georgia Institute of Technology received $65 million through the program to create two centers. The program also gave $35 million to Columbia University; $35 million to the University of California at San Diego; $34 million to Cornell University; $32.7 million to Pennsylvania State University; and $31.5 million to the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
