About us

Silicon Saxony is one of Europe‘s most successful trade association for the semiconductor, electronic, microsystems and software industries. The number of members has risen to 300 at present.

In order to create effective and efficient networks the association enables vibrant forums for its members and specialists. These work groups are an essential driving force in the development of new technologies and procedures, e. g. cyber-physical-systems based on high-quality microelectronics and software.

Five star award: In 2012 we were awarded the GOLD label for excellent cluster management by the European Cluster Excellence Initiative (ECEI). In 2015 we passed the recertification. Thus, Silicon Saxony ranks among the first three European clusters bestowed the independent quality certificate.
