Europe's ambitious industrial strategy for micro- and nanoelectronics consists of a number of specific steps:
- Electronic Components & Systems Initiative (ECSEL): The ECSEL Joint Undertaking is a partnership between the private and the public sectors for electronic components and systems. ECSEL will be operational until 2024 as part of the EU’s research funding programme Horizon 2020;
- Smart specialisation, cooperation with public authorities: One of the most relevant goals is to encourage the dialogue with key Research and Technology Organisations, regions and Member States to strengthen the micro- and nanoelectronics eco-system at the European level;
- Access to design and silicon, developing skills: The promotion of competences for industry will increase the demand of qualified people. The Electronic Strategy aims to move closer the research results to start-ups, SMEs, universities and users for and early experimentation;
- Electronics Community dialogue: The Electronics stakeholder community is set-up to actively solicit input, obtain feedback and wider support from the actors along the electronics value chain;
- European Industrial Strategic Roadmap: The Implementation Plan of the European Industrial Strategic Roadmap lays down the detailed actions to achieve the Roadmap target of doubling the economic value of semiconductors production in Europe by 2020-2025.
