Lab4MEMS is a new R&D project recently funded by the European Community under the ENIAC Nanoelectronics Framework aiming to establish a European Pilot Line for key enabling technologies on advanced piezoelectric and magnetic materials, including advanced 3D Packaging technologies to meet the ever evolving market needs.
The Pilot Line is promoted to reinforce the manufacturing facilities currently located in each respective
participating country, aiming to implement and optimize the industrial processes and to validate the supply
chains and the demonstrators suitable to penetrate the market. The main industrial Pilot Line is located in
STMicroelectronics among Italy and Malta, well supported by R&D Centres, SMEs and Research Labs distributed
among the 9 european countries of the consortia, streaming the whole manufacturing chain from front-end to
back-end. The projects has started on January 2013 and will run for 30 months.
