Yet another NSW government tech investment

The state government will fund the Semiconductor Sector Service Bureau, to, ”build connectivity and collaboration, and support commercial impact”

That’s semiconductor as in computer chip.

The bureau will bring together “leading experts” from the Australian National Fabrication Facility, CSIRO, Macquarie U, UNSW and Uni Sydney. Intent is to, “secure a brighter future for NSW by accelerating our participation in the global semiconductor market.”

There is no word on funding but CMM suspects it will come out of the $378m for research in two streams announced in last week’s state budget (CMM June 24).
