Europractice is an EC initiative which aims to stimulate the wider adoption of state of the art microelectronics and electronic system design methodologies and technologies within Europe and a wide range of modern design methodologies for IC, Photonics, MEMS, FPGA and Systems, for non-commercial research and teaching are available to Academic Institutions and publicly funded Research Laboratories in Europe and some other countries where bilateral agreements are in place. Europractice membership and access to design tools is managed by UKRI at the Microelectronics Support Centre, STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Along with many organisations and universities across Europe, staff from the Europractice partners including Microelectronics Support Centre staff based at UKRI-STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, are now working from home. We will do our very best to continue to provide services in the current difficult and worrying times. If you have any questions then please use email to make contact with us

Together, we will do everything we can to overcome this difficult period in the best possible way. Take good care of yourself, your friends, colleagues and family.
