Centre of III-Nitride Technology (C3NiT)

Reference number
Coordinator Linköpings universitet - Institutionen för ekonomisk och industriell utveckling
Funding from Vinnova SEK 29 600 000
Project duration July 2017 - October 2022
Status Ongoing
Venture Competence centre

Purpose and goal

C3NiT aims at performing collaborative research and enhancing utilization of research results, generating innovation in high-frequency and power electronics based on III-Nitrides, addressing the global challenges on greenhouse gas emissions and increasing dependence on mobile data. The goals are to enable increased capacity and efficiency in communication, sensing and power systems, which are important for Swedish industrial competitiveness. Our vision is to further stimulate and boost the Swedish Industry-Academia Cluster on group III-Nitrides to become world leading.

Expected results and effects

Expected results from C3NiT are to have developed and strengthened the Swedish Industry-Academia Cluster on group III-nitrides in terms of more efficient collaboration and by attracting new industrial partners. We expect to have identified and initiated activities in new areas where III-N electronics can be utilized, and to have promoted the mobility between industry and academia. Knowledge transfer to the industrial partners will be accelerated and availability of III-N electronics for the industrial partners will be ensured via growth of a Swedish and European supply-chain.

Planned approach and implementation

We will develop the infrastructures for material growth; device and circuit fabrication, and characterization at academia to be able to support relevant industrial collaborations. The existing innovation systems at LiU and Chalmers will be used to accelerate knowledge transfer to the industrial partners. Mobility between industry and academia will be promoted by encouraging and supporting long term stays, guest lecturing, supervision etc. We will initiate and attract new international academic and industrial collaboration partners through research programs in the centre.
