CATRENE, a EUREKA Cluster for micro and nanoelectronics, was started in 2008 and launched its last call for project proposals in 2015.
It aimed for Technological Leadership for a competitive European ICT industry. It was based on the ambition of Europe and the European companies to deliver nano-/microelectronics solutions that respond to the needs of society at large, improving the economic prosperity of Europe and reinforcing the ability of its industry to be at the forefront of the global competition.
CATRENE built on the successful previous EUREKA programmes JESSI, MEDEA, and MEDEA+ in fostering the continued development of a dynamic European ecosystem with the critical mass necessary to compete at a global level in high technology industries.
Overall, 51 projects were labeled by the EUREKA cluster CATRENE.
