UNIQUE is co-financed by the European Commission under EU Framework Programme 7. The project is running for 2½ years from September 2009  until February 2012. The consortium of the UNIQUE project consists of eight European  organizations. UNIQUE brings together five academic and  research institutions (including three leading universities and two research SMEs) and three large microelectronics companies from six European  countries (Austria, Belgium, France,  Germany, Ireland and the Netherlands). These organisations are forming an unbroken chain stretching from   basic research and security design to applied research and end-user producers for consumers and industry.
