"What's in a name?" DG 'CONNECT' replaces DG 'INFSO'

Article
The Information society and Media Directorate-General is being reorganised into Communications networks, content and technology Directorate-General. The new name will come into force in the beginning of July 2012. At the same time also our current Nanoelectronics unit will merge with the Micro-nanosystems unit into one unit called "Components". This new unit will then follow the topics of micro- and nanoelectronics, smart embedded components and hardware and software integration. Among the priorities of the Components unit, you will find: Horizon 2020 preparation and stakeholder engagement. Future JTI on electronics (nano-electronics, micro-systems & embedded systems). Innovation and industrial competitiveness including follow-up on KET's. Technical, scientific, financial and administrative monitoring of projects.
