ERC Membership and Boards:
is a cornerstone on which the SRC Engineering Research Center (ERC)
for Environmentally Benign Semiconductor Manufacturing was built.
The ERC has developed active partnerships with IC manufacturers and equipment suppliers to ensure that the technology
developed at the Center is transferred in a timely and effective manner.
The ERC is funded by the
Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC).
The ERC welcomes SRC member companies as 'SRC Member
Interested non-SRC member companies are encouraged to
join the Center as 'Member Affiliates'.
** The ERC also has a third limited category of membership: 'Research
Affiliate'. This is reserved for government organizations such as the
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Department of Energy
(DOE) National Laboratories.
Benefits of Industrial Member
- Voting seats on the Centerís
Industrial Advisory Board.
This board is the main channel for members to provide input and control on
the direction, priorities and procedures of the Center.
- Invitations to the Center's annual meetings, workshops, short courses,
technology transfer meetings and technical conferences.
- Early and privileged access to Center's publications and reports.
- Opportunity for member technical personnel to guide and participate in Center
research as project mentors on projects and thrust areas selected by the
- Privileged access and advanced information leading to selection of student
interns and assignees to industry.
- Early information on graduating students, resumes and employment
- Early access to information leading to technology transfer and facilitated
licensing of Center technology.
- Opportunities for placing Researchers in Residence from member companies at Center
ERC Member Companies
SRC-GRC Industrial Liaisons work with one or more specific ERC research tasks of
critical interest or potential value to the GRC community. Being a liaison
requires a degree of dedication and a willingness to work as part of a team long
enough to develop the personal relationships needed for productive
university-industry partnering. Each team builds their own unique relationship
based upon the particular needs of the personnel and the research project. GRC
Industrial Liaisons continue to have significant impact on the technical contributions
of the research, have been instrumental in transferring the research results to
industry, and are deeply committed to the education of graduate students.

Researchers in Residence:
The Visiting Scientist Program at the ERC was established between the
Center and its industry affiliates to facilitate in-depth interaction between
the ERC and industry. Selected scientists from industry and academia work for
extended periods of time (six months to two years in length) on research
projects at selected ERC member universities.
Each request for a Visiting Scientist
assignment is evaluated and arranged on a case-by-case basis. The individual
industry or academic institution is the primary sponsor of their visiting
scientist. If you are interested in participating in the ERC's Visiting
Scientist Program, please send a resume and letter of intent outlining what you
hope to accomplish while at the ERC.
