The Polish government’s decision to support semiconductor investments is another significant step towards building up cybersecurity and economic independence in our country. Along with this decision, potential investors received a signal from Poland on readiness to support investments as part of measures dedicated to strengthening the European semiconductor ecosystem. At the same time, it is also a signal for the Polish microelectronics ecosystem to develop modern technologies and to educate staff for the reviving semiconductor industry.
“The Łukasiewicz Institute of Microelectronics and Photonics (IMiF), as one of the stakeholders in the system of higher education and science, declares its readiness to support all activities leading to the reconstruction of the Polish semiconductor industry” – comments Piotr J. Cywiński, Leader of the International Cooperation at Łukasiewicz – IMIF.
In a sense, the Polish microelectronics industry will be reborn based on modern technologies, and the amount of USD 1.5 billion is a significant financial injection to begin this process. The emerging Polish semiconductor industry will require further stages of additional investments, especially in the development of well-educated labor and in efforts to maintain the quality and quantity of components to meet the needs of the local market.
