The CSA Catapult and ITRI signed a memorandum of understanding at ceremony conducted during a UK trade visit to Taiwan.
ITRI said seeks to join CSA Catapult's proficiency in semiconductor epitaxy, design, and system application with ITRI's leading assets in semiconductor research and process development, wide bandgap power electronics, heterogeneous integration, advanced display, sensors, and optical communication.
"As one of the world-leading research institutes in semiconductors, ITRI was highlighted in a case study back in 2010 when Hermann Hauser made his recommendations for technology and innovation centers which became the Catapult Network," said Simon Edmonds, deputy executive chair of Innovate UK, the UK government's innovation agency.
Edwin Liu, president of ITRI, said he hopes the alliance will encourage more collaborations between semiconductor industries in the UK and Taiwan.
