Japan an the Netherlands sign two chip cooperation agreements
Japan and the Netherlands signed a Memorandum of Cooperation on semiconductor policies, as the two nations critical in the global chip supply chain come closer through U.S.-led export curbs on China.
Under the agreement, Japanese and Dutch governments will facilitate private and public sector cooperation on semiconductor and related technologies such as photonics, sharing information on policies.
The countries also share the significance of research projects at the Japanese government-backed next-generation chipmaker Rapidus Corp and promote tie-up among research labs.
The East Netherlands delegation was extra proud, as they celebrated the signing of a MoU between the University of Twente and Tokyo University, which confirms the continued cooperation between the two top microelectronics institutes. They were even joined virtually by Bram Nauta!
