Advanced micro and nano-electronics technologies are at the origin of most innovations and productivity improvements throughout the economy. They create growth, jobs and enhance Europe's competitiveness.
This is best facilitated when we work together on a European level to tackle challenges related to technology development and to address fragmented markets and weak value chains.
It is crucial for innovation in Europe that we join forces and open cooperate beyond the national borders.
EU investments in research projects for micro and nano-electronics contributed to the progress of miniaturisation (More Moore) and improved functionality (More than Moore) and this all at an affordable cost. More efficient electrical cars, smart textiles, revolutionary health devices and many more are just some examples of results achieved with micro and nano-electronics technologies.
The policy on micro- and nanoelectronics is implemented in close cooperation with the ECSEL Joint Undertaking.
