Introduction

On April 14th 2017, the Ministry of Science and Technology of PRC released the notice and competition organization plan of the 6th China Innovation and Entrepreneurship Contest. It is clearly stated in the plan that the International Advanced Semiconductor Innovation and Entrepreneurship Contest, hosted by China Advanced Semiconductor Innovation & Industry Alliance (CASA), is selected as one of the professional competitions. This is the first time that China’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship Contest accepts contest led by professional alliance.

In order to better integrate the advantages of domestic and international advanced semiconductor resources, in 2017 the 2nd International Advanced Semiconductor Innovation and Entrepreneurship Contest will continue to adhere to “government guidance, public support, market mechanism”, and make its efforts to build a service platform of the advanced semiconductor through the market selection mechanism and diversified system.

The contest will set up 7 Chinese divisions (namely Southern, Jing-Jin-Ji, Yangtze river delta, Northeast, Western,Central and Xiamen) and overseas division(Recruiting projects from U.K, Italy, Netherlands and Finland). From this platform, the contest will select a batch of quality SMEs and entrepreneurial teams, meanwhile, the contest innovatively introduces some projects, which from large enterprises participate in the competition, attracting quality projects to implement in the local government, and forming the complete industrial ecological chain of advanced semiconductor industry.

The advanced semiconductor industry is in a high-speed development stage with continuous innovation. It will lead to strategic changes of the next generation of technology and application, and have a significant impact on every aspect of human life including energy conservation, emissions reduction, defense security, and information technology. As a professional competition, the 2nd International Advanced Semiconductor Innovation and Entrepreneurship Contest will promote the application of the cutting-edge technology, generic technology as well as system integration technology, and explore the innovative model of diversified, multi-level independent R&D and open cooperation.

Contest Highlights

Set up eight competition divisions: to integrate the quality resources of domestic and overseas.

The 2th IASIC will further integrate high-quality advanced semiconductor related resources at home and abroad, setting up both Chinese (namely Southern, Jing-Jin-Ji, Yangtze river delta, Northeast, Western,Central and Xiamen) and overseas division(Recruiting projects from U.K, Italy, Netherlands and Finland). The winners will be awarded, docking with enterprises and displayed on the SSL international BBS.

Optimize entries fields: professional competition, comprehensive innovation.

The contest mainly focuses on the third generation semiconductor, made from SiC or GaN, collecting entries in these fields of Photoelectron (Semi-conductor Lighting, Environmental Monitoring, UV Light Source, Laser Display), Power Electronics (Photovoltaic Inverter, Industrial Motor, Smart Grid, High-speed Railway, New Energy Vehicles, Consumer Electronics) and Microwave RF (5G, Mobile Base Station, Satellite Communication, Space Remote Sensing) and theirs surrounding products innovation.

Innovate apply channels: projects from large enterprises also can participate in the competition.

The contest innovatively introduces the projects, which from large enterprises participate in the competition, attracting quality projects to implement in the local government, and forming the complete industrial ecological chain of advanced semiconductor industry.

Industrial connection: to construct a professional industrial chain.

The industry leading enterprises put forward large numbers of propositions according to theirs technical problems and demands, setting up industry funds. The target projects or companies can directly dock with the industry channels of the leading enterprises, getting the support of the industrial fund.

Set up investment funds: to establish professional investment platform.

The contest organizing committee will set up investment funds for the projects, which stand out in each division, and guide the industry enterprises and investment institutions to dock with the excellent entries, helping these projects to find their market positioning in China and implement commercial operation for them, so as to realize localization development in Chinese market for overseas projects and the internationalization promotion for Chinese projects.
