Intel and Tyndall National Institute in Cork have announced the renewal of a $1.5 million research partnership. Intel has committed to invest $1.5 million over the next three years in developing innovative technology with Ireland’s leading ICT research institute, building on the investment of previous phases and reflecting the success of their collaborative research. The partnership, which has gone through two 3-year phases since 2009, will now run until 2018.
The agreement between Intel and Tyndall is a unique program within Intel, involving a direct relationship between researchers at Tyndall and Intel’s components research group in Portland, Oregon. Under the agreement, Intel and Tyndall will work together to investigate next-generation materials, devices and photonics technologies. Tyndall’s expertise in the field of semiconductor technology has been fundamental to the partnership with Intel, and both organisations anticipate building on the work of the first two phases of the program to make an impact on the challenges of developing future electronic devices. As in previous years, the partnership provides Intel with a commercial exploitation licence to technology created through the collaboration with Tyndall.
