IfM Engage seeking feedback from semiconductor sector as part of major industry feasibility study

The Department for Science, Innovation & Technology (DSIT) has commissioned a feasibility study to understand the technical and economic feasibility of developing specific capabilities to support commercial R&D, grow the UK semiconductor sector and contribute to supply chain resilience.

The study is led by IfM Engage and supported by strong industrial and academic consortium partners including the CSA Catapult, Techworks NMI, Silicon Catalyst, Photonics Leadership Group, Cambridge Econometrics, Future Horizons, Semiwise, Imperial College and the University of Leeds.

As part of this study, a survey has been designed to provide data to help map the infrastructure requirements of the UK semiconductor industry so that appropriate proposals for major interventions can be formulated that will boost commercial innovation in areas where the UK has or could gain strategic advantage.

If you are UK company that operates in the semiconductor sector, IfM would like to capture your feedback. Your responses will directly feed into business case analysis for the UK government and is highly appreciated by the project team.

The survey can be accessed through this link: https://cambridge.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0wHmwhFElgECl1A

Filling in the questionnaire will likely take around 10-15 minutes and the survey will close on 19 June 2023.

Dr Nicky Athanassopoulou, Head of Solution Development, IfM Engage, University of Cambridge, said:

“IfM Engage will utilise the Strategic roadmapping process (S-Plan) to help collect, analyse and validate data from a large number of relevant stakeholders and multiple perspectives systematically and objectively.

“This method has been researched extensively by IfM over the past 25 years and has been applied successfully to hundreds of highly complex challenges for government, industry and academia internationally.”
