Continued innovation and the development of new nano-electronic technologies depend on cutting-edge facilities. The ASCENT+ taps into the resources of a rich and diverse network of science and industry partners to offer open access to this vital infrastructure for nano-electronics.

This commitment to openness facilitates access to innovative CMOS technologies and infrastructures. It is an important step on the road to a strong European community working on the solutions for nano-electronic challenges.
