News :: European Commission to propose an Electronics Strategy for Europe
(15/05/2013) Micro and nanoelectronics underpin a significant part of the worldwide economy. Their role will continue to grow as future products and services will become more digital.
In the coming days, the European Commission will propose a strategy aiming at maintaining Europe at the leading edge in the design and manufacturing of micro and nanoelectronics and to provide benefits across the economy. In order to achieve this goal, the strategy proposes (i) to build a European industrial roadmap to be implemented through investments by the EU, Member States and regions; (ii) to set up a Joint Undertaking to support R&D&I actions in micro and nanoelectronics under Horizon 2020; and (iii) to implement flanking measures to strengthen Europe's competitiveness (including progress towards a level playing field on state aid, support to business development and SMEs, and actions addressing the skills gap).
