SEAL's kick-off meeting in June 2010.The Semiconductor Equipment Assessment Leveraging Innovation (SEAL) project has had a successful first year of operation, reports Fries Research & Technology (FRT). FRT, along with Siltronic AG and the Fraunhofer-Institut für Integrierte Systeme und Bauelementetechnologie, were praised in a 12-month report carried out by the EU and the review panel.

With 38 partners across Europe, the SEAL project is designed to strengthen the European semiconductor equipment industry, supporting small and medium-sized companies and allowing them to benefit from a network of manufacturers and researchers. Funded by the EU, the project has a budget in excess of €14 million and is expected to run for three years.

Dr. Thomas Fries from FRT, which is contributing its knowledge of optical multisensor surface measurement and wafer metrology to the program, said that "the first year has shown that we can jointly provide impetus".
