Project Manager | Semiconductor Market
Our client is an independent research organisation whose expertise and research make an important contribution to the competitiveness of companies and organisations, to the economy and to the quality of society as a whole. Innovation with purpose is what they stands for. With 3500 people we develop knowledge not for its own sake but for practical application. To create new products that make life more pleasant and valuable and help companies innovate. They work for a variety of customers: governments, the SME sector, large companies, service providers and non-governmental organisations.
The Nano Instrumentation department focuses on the control of chemical and physical processes in an ultra-clean vacuum environment. In European projects and for clients such as ASML and Carl Zeiss, we develop knowledge and apply it to improve the production quality and lifespan of semiconductor equipment. With mostly self-developed experimental set-ups we can establish pollution mechanisms, and on this basis advise on ultra-clean designs and the remediation of contaminants on a molecular and nano-particle scale.
- The projects we do contribute to the latest developments in the semiconductor field, and the interests that are linked to the mass production of semiconductor applications. In the projects we seek the best combination of scientists, experimentalists and equipment to serve those interests. Project leaders weigh up these interests on a daily basis in order to achieve the project goals.
