The study is expected to elaborate on the following aspects by comparing European and non-European (Asian and US) nanoelectronics clusters:
• Policy measures and incentives such as state aid, tax exemption, favourable trade
conditions, precommercial public procurement, access to finances (seed capital,
venture capital, loans), public private partnership and other means.
• Analysis of R&D&I capacities in Member States and regions and overall in Europe.
• Effect of innovation policy and industrial policy regimes.
• Technology transfer from research organizations and universities to companies in a
nanoelectronics cluster and between nanoelectronics clusters.
• Analysis of the technology transfer between the nanoelectronics manufacturing
companies and the different application customers.
• Compare different clustering models for different types of activities world wide
• Analyse the potential for new clusters or further networking.
