Heterogeneous Technology Alliance (HTA)

The HTA is a novel approach to creating and developing microtechnologies, nanoelectronics and smart systems for next-generation products and solutions. By pooling the capabilities and facilities of CEA LETI&Lite (France), CSEM (Switzerland), Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics (Germany) and VTT (Finland), it brings coherence and synergies between leading teams and research infrastructures in the fields of miniaturization and system integration. Operated as a "one-stop-shop" for complete system solutions, HTA guarantees simple access to an enlarged portfolio of technologies, and is structured to facilitate technology transfer to European and international companies. With a combined staff of more than 5,000 scientists and a portfolio of more than 3,000 patents, HTA is de facto the largest European institute in the field.
