The DIMENSION consortium comprises 6 leading European industrial and academic partners with complementary skills and a long lasting experience in research. The project consists of one small- and medium enterprise (OPC), three large industrial companies (ADVA, IBM and Optocap), two research institutions (IHP and AIT) and one academic institute (TU Dresden). The project is thus well balanced with its stakeholders coming from public and private entities (both research and industrial partners). The partners are very much evenly distributed over Europe and are located in 4 different countries, i.e., Switzerland, Germany, Greece, and the United Kingdom.
The six DIMENSION partners combine complementary competencies which span the wide area from architecture, over component design, semiconductor technology and fabrication, over packaging up to the end-user. DIMENSION is therefore able to bridge the gap from research to commercialization and thus form a seamless supply chain.
