The mission statement of the NEXTS consortium is to provide European industry and academia with a platform to develop Smart Integrated Systems, from advanced prototype design to volume production. The latter will be achieved by providing affordable and easier access to a wide range of state-of-the-art industry-grade fabrication technologies and design tools complemented with training and support to the customer in all critical steps which are needed. NEXTS builds on the preceding Europractice initiatives and will move advanced nanoelectronics components to packaged integrated systems. Ultimately, it will act as a true one-stop shop for technologies enabling fully integrated systems and providing direct routes for industrial up-scaling of those systems. As a value chain aggregator, NEXTS aims to close the gap between the supply and demand side for electronic smart systems in virtually all application domains and therefore provides maximum transformative impact to all sides of the value chain.
