The European Commission has launched a call for tenders to carry out the study on the electronics ecosystem: overview, developments and Europe's position in the world.

The envisaged study will provide a method and data to quantify the electronics value chain and market segmentation in Europe in light of the changes in the European electronics industry — e.g. the emergence of the Internet of things (IoT) including wearables, autonomous systems including autonomous driving, artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance computing (study reference: SMART 2016/0007).
