Low-cost MEMS

With our help in securing public-private partnership (PPP) funding and building a consortium of experts, the European Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) industry is gaining a new competitive edge with novel, low-cost manufacturing methods.

Million € funding
Funding instrument ENIAC Joint Undertaking
Project duration 2 years 4 months, Mar 2014 - Jun 2016

Challenge: Develop novel, low-cost MEMS manufacturing processes to bring radical change and a substantial competitive edge to the European MEMS industry.

How we reached the goals

Spinverse took care of selecting the most suitable funding instrument and finding the right external partners. We helped write the proposal and managed the application process. Our responsibility was also developing a cost model for the project’s new technology and taking care of project management on behalf of Okmetic.

Key takeaways

The goal was to demonstrate significant cost reduction in MEMS manufacturing by using printing technologies to reduce consumption of materials, chemicals and energy.

Most of the goals were successfully reached with huge impacts to many fields ranging from mobile phone cameras to MEMS-sensors in cars.
