EPSRC announces funding call for creating a National Research Facility for Epitaxy (February 2022)

A Statement of Need was successfully conducted in September 2020, and submitted in November 2020.  136 members of the community attended and contributed to the discussions.  The event provided an opportunity to make a concerted statement about the vibrancy and future directions of the semiconductor community in the UK and to help shape the role of a future National Facility. This has led to a call for an Epitaxy facility, which was launched in Feb 2022. Read the National Epitaxy Facility Statement of Need.

The EPSRC National Epitaxy Facility plays a central role in enabling world class III-V research through its support for EPSRC grants and its wide ranging capabilities in epitaxy and device fabrication.  We also welcome collaborative engagements with partners under schemes other than EPSRC grant funding eg. Innovate UK, EU, and we work with industrial partners under direct contract mechanisms.
