Silicon Saxony is one of Europe‘s most successful trade association for the semiconductor, electronic, microsystems, smart systems, photovoltaic, applications and software industries. The number of members has risen to 320 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. With the objective of strengthening the sustainability of the business region as a location for information & communication technology (ICT) at both the national and international level, the association sees itself as a communication and cooperation platform for its members. The close cooperation that exists within the network promotes and stabilizes the economic development of the member companies. Intelligent cooperative partnerships among the members permit knowledge transfer, synergies, close business relationships, and promote innovative power. Externally, Silicon Saxony e. V. makes a vital contribution to the active locational marketing as well as the creation of networks among European microelectronics venues.

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. In 2016 the “Germany – Land of Ideas” initiative and Deutsche Bank awarded Silicon Saxony as one of 100 ”Landmarks in the Land of Ideas”.
