Swansea University is planning to construct the Center for Integrative Semiconductor Materials in Wales in the United Kingdom. The three-story, 46,500-sf facility will house cleanrooms, labs, and offices to support the creation of advanced semiconductor materials, processes, and technologies. Located on the Bay Campus, the multidisciplinary project will integrate manufacturing, research, and development operations as well as offering business incubation and workforce development opportunities. BREEAM Excellent sustainable design will be sought for the project, which will feature heat recovery systems and solar photovoltaic arrays. Funding for the Center for Integrative Semiconductor Materials includes £30 million from the UK Research Partnership Investment Fund and £60 million from industry and philanthropic contributions.
