SHIFT project  - Sustainable tecHnologies enablIng Future Telecommunication applications ​-, in the Horizon Europe KDT framework,  will bring together European and world leaders in the manufacturing of Silicon and GaN based semiconductors, terrestrial and space telecommunications systems, and renowned laboratories and academic partners. Thus, SHIFT will guarantee a high technical and scientific level, as well as the adequacy of activities and results with respect to the requirements of the fields covered by SHIFT partners and their markets.​

The SHIFT project supported by 43 partners, European public research and academic organizations, and private industry leaders, aims to make important contributions to both green and digital transitions, through innovations in component and system technologies for advanced telecommunications.​

SHIFT project will cover innovative semiconductor and packaging technologies by transforming them into mature manufacturing processes, and their validation with demonstrators for telecommunication areas such as B5G (Beyond 5G) and 6G wireless network access and backhaul, ultra-high speed optical links for servers, satellite telecommunications, and Earth observation. SHIFT will also contribute to environmental and societal concerns, with an analysis of the life cycle of telecommunications products, through the manufacturing chain, their operational use, and their recycling. Finally, the SHIFT project tends to respond to Europe's desire for sovereignty in semiconductors, by accelerating the development and dissemination of the latest European technologies, by allowing many young engineers and researchers to train, and thus enable future ambitious and sustainable development of innovative companies in Europe.​

SIAE MICROELETTRONICA with the project partners will work both on the development of a new solution of advanced mm-wave components conceived for high-capacity communications, and to develop a Ka-band transmitting phased array tile for SatCom applications.
