Carbyon’s first two carbon removal installations will help clean the Québec skies
Eindhoven University of Technology and ASML will collaborate on a research programme. They will also build a new ASML research facility on the TU/e campus, including a clean room. The realisation of the proposed facility involves an estimated investment of several hundred million euros. The new facility is intended to accommodate more than 500 researchers, including several hundred ASML employees.
The two parties signed a ten-year strategic roadmap for research in plasma physics, artificial intelligence, mechatronics and semiconductor lithography. The new programme will create up to 40 PhD positions annually, for which TU/e will recruit international scientific talents. In turn, ASML will provide its top engineers as hybrid teachers in these fields and increase the number of internships. This approach is an extension of the existing cooperation between TU/e and ASML.
Jos Benschop, Senior Vice President Technology at ASML: "Our relationship with Eindhoven University of Technology dates back to the early days of ASML. Our collaboration is based on a shared commitment to creating meaningful innovations for society by bridging fundamental science and industrial engineering. This next step in our partnership is shaping a brighter future for the Brainport region."
"Collaboration with industry is in the university's DNA and in line with our strategy. We are a top international university with strong roots in Brainport Eindhoven. We have a leading position in collaboration with industry, which we want to build on. It will also help us attract top talent from around the world, which is crucial for Brainport Eindhoven, the Netherlands and Europe."
