A strong chip technology for Europe

Article
As the markets and the need for chips is now literally everywhere, when thinking of the future of Europe, one should pay special attention to the potential of the European micro- and nanoelectronics sector as a provider of growth.

--- Posted by Willy van Puymbroeck,  DG INFSO,  Head of the unit for  Nanoelectronics

What was perceived by our grandparents as fairy-tales - e.g. doors that opens themselves, talking with someone that is miles away, etc - is everyday life for us. Many of us carry today the power of a computer in a pocket thanks to the great advances in the information and communication technologies. These changes are mentioned by our Commissioner, Neelie Kroes in her blog focusing on electronics for Europe. As the markets and the need for chips is now literally everywhere, when thinking of the future of Europe, one should pay special attention to the potential of the European micro- and nanoelectronics sector as a provider of growth.

"We have the building blocks at our disposal", stated Neelie Kroes in her speech at the IMEC technology Forum last week  in Brussels. Why not try to turn this sector from being too fragmented to survive in the global competition into an innovative "European powerhouse" as Neelie Kroes noted?

How can this then be achieved? In addition to the already exiting tools of for example the Joint Technology Initiatives and the nearly 1.8 billion Euros of EU funding that the new Framework Programme for research, Horizon 2020, is proposing for this sector, the industries and the Member States also need to commit to boosting the European level cooperation across the whole industrial value chain as emphasized by Neelie Kroes. This is crucial for bringing about success stories that can put Europe truly back on the map in the semiconductor industry that currently provides for some 10 per cent of the global GDP.

Neelie Kroes addressed that challenge to the right crowd, as the annual IMEC Technology Forum gathers key players from the nano- and microelectronics industry and research as well as policy makers under one roof. While waiting for their responses, it would be useful for you to check out the Digital Innovation Charter that we are writing together for the Digital Agenda Assembly with our industrial stakeholders and comment on it about how exactly the industries should commit to bringing about innovation in Europe.
