Semiconductor Sector Service Bureau Expressions of Interest Now Open


R&D NSW is pleased to advise that Expressions of Interest to host the Semiconductor Sector Service Bureau (S3B) are now open.

In December 2020, the Office of the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer published the Australian Semiconductor Sector Study. The study examined Australia’s semiconductor sector’s capabilities, needs and opportunities, and was based on over 100 one-on-one and group interviews with sector leaders. A primary recommendation of the Australian Semiconductor Sector Study was that a Semiconductor Sector Service Bureau (S3B) be established. S3B will enhance the capability, workforce, market connectedness and competitiveness of NSW and Australia’s semiconductor sector, with the objective of increasing NSW and Australia’s participation in global semiconductor markets. S3B will be primarily funded by the NSW Government through the Emerging Industry Infrastructure Fund (EIIF). The EIIF is an initiative of the Turning ideas into jobs: Accelerating R&D in NSW Action Plan.

R&D NSW is now inviting Expressions of Interest to host S3B.

Expressions of Interest close at 9am on Monday 1 November 2021.
