Let's catch up and overtake Mura! Competition for innovative hardware IT projects "More than Moore"

    Moore's law states that the number of transistors on a chip doubles every 1.5-2 years. The traditional trend is to miniaturize components per unit area. An alternative is the “More than Moore” approach, which consists in adding extra value with the help of new transistor properties.
    Exactly this way, “More than Moore” is the name for the competition of innovative hardware IT projects held by the Skolkovo Foundation together with partner companies, including Intel, to stimulate development in promising areas of computer technology. For all interested, a list of priority areas and conditions of the competition - under the button.

    Any research group based on educational institutions, enterprises, institutes, etc. can become participants in the competition. Its purpose is to identify promising innovative projects in the field of information transfer, storage and processing technologies, as well as their financial and mentoring support with the help of development institutions, venture funds and industry leaders.

    List of priority areas for the contest:
    • Development of new nanodevices for storing and processing information, new energy-efficient devices and instruments.
    • Development of promising methods for receiving, storing, processing and transmitting information, including wireless networks.
    • New developments in photonics, nanophotonics and metamaterials, which allow creating fundamentally new ones including integrated optical systems.
    • New technologies and materials for creating nanoscale optical and electronic components; storage and data exchange devices, as well as hybrid optical components for traditional computers, including silicon photonics.
    • 3D integration technologies and the creation of basic integrated optical components for advanced computing platforms.
    • Control technologies in communication systems with arbitrary routing based on a dynamic network of heterogeneous repeaters.
    • Technologies for wearable electronics, including sensor networks for the body, biochips.
    • New microcomponents, MEMS, sensors, actuators, micro-navigation and micro-positioning technologies.

    Applications of participants are accepted until November 15. You can familiarize yourself with the requirements for the project and the composition of project documentation, as well as apply on the competition website .
