CITC is a non-profit, joint innovation center specializing in heterogeneous integration and advanced chip packaging technology. We have created an effective ecosystem in which companies, research and educational institutes work on bridging the gap between academics and industry.
CITC was founded in 2019 with strategic partners TNO and Delft University of Technology and is supported by local and regional governments.
Within the world of semiconductors and photonics, the cost and performance of advanced devices are increasingly dominated by integration and chip packaging challenges. We believe that innovative solutions will be the key to developing new advanced devices.
We will provide access to innovation, infrastructure and education to provide solutions to the future challenges in energy, healthcare, mobility, agriculture and food.
We develop packaging and integration technology for chips to enable the increasing degree of intelligence to be built into products. In this way, we provide solutions to societal challenges.
We bring leading industrial innovations in integration and packaging technology to the market in a selected and growing number of application areas. We create an effective ecosystem in which companies, research and educational institutions work on bridging the gap between academics and industry. We lead research programs, aim to create and share knowledge, and support business initiatives.
Our team is small, yet pragmatic, driven, talented and multicultural. We are located in building M on the Novio Tech Campus in Nijmegen, the Netherlands – perfectly situated in the heart of the Dutch semiconductor industry.
The success of CITC depends on the quality of its people. We are regularly looking for new colleagues who can work with us on the next generation of chip packaging. If we do not have a vacancy that matches your profile, please do not hesitate to send an open application.
Opportunities for students
One of CITC’s core activities is providing access to education. Education and training are key to securing the future of the semiconductor industry in Europe. By providing a connection between education and industry, we contribute to the training and skills of people who match industry needs.
We regularly offer internships, graduation assigments and PDEng/PhD projects to students.
What our customers say about us
Waander van Heerde, chief scientific officer of Enzyre: “CITC is a great partner working on the introduction of new chip packaging technologies offering us small-scale production in a research setting. Besides, we value the good infrastructure, short lines and flexibility. The fact that all relevant parties involved in chip production, front end and back end, are located on or nearby the Novio Tech Campus is a huge benefit for us. CITC is a valuable addition to this ecosystem.”
