Research on digital technologies: CEA and KIST sign a MoU

​​Leti, an institute of CEA Tech, and the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) signed on July 13th, 2016, an agreement to jointly explore a variety of technologies, including monolithic 3D, neuromorphic architectures, non-volatile 3D memory, spintronics and ultra-low power semiconductors.

​The five-year joint project also will focus on creating a broad network to foster international collaboration on ultra-low power semiconductors, which both institutes agree will be required to power the ever-increasing spread of digital devices and the Internet of Things.  ​

Leti CEO Marie Semeria considers that “this agreement reflects that we have identified numerous vital technology fields that must be developed to make industry more productive, companies more innovative and society more responsive to people in many aspects of their lives.”

“Post-Silicon Semiconductor Institute (PSI) of KIST is playing a key role in semiconductor R&D in Korea. With this agreement, KIST and Leti will strengthen the collaborative relationship to achieve global leadership in the field of semiconductors” added KIST president Byung Gwon LEE.
Leti and KIST are both public research bodies :
  • ​Within the CEA Technological Research Division, Leti focuses its activity on micro- and nanotechnologies and their applications to system (in many fields as ICT, biology and health, etc.) Since 1957, Leti has been a preferred intermediary from industry and academic research and it provides each year the development and transfer of innovative technologies in various sectors. With proven experience and a portfolio of 2.800 patents, it helps to strengthen the competitiveness of its industrial partners.
  • Founded in 1966 and located in Seoul, KIST is the first multidisciplinary scientific research institute in South Korea and has contributed significantly to the economic development of the country, especially in the decades of accelerated growth that were the 1970s and 1980s.
