In Europe, the micro- and nanoelectronics industry is responsible for 200,000 direct and more than 1,000,000 indirect jobs. The demand for these particular skills is increasing.
For micro- and nanoelectronics, the engagement of the industry to attract the young generation, early in its education is critical. We will continue to co-finance projects to develop and disseminate training and teaching materials on the latest technology in micro- and nanoelectronics, as well as support awareness campaigns targeting young entrepreneurs. This will be achieved through the research and innnovation programme, Horizon2020.
