EUROPE – KNOWING ABOUT ITS STRENGTHS
Europe’s semiconductor industry is gearing-up! After the European Commission’s announcement of EUR 100 billion private/public investments into semiconductor advanced technologies and manufacturing, the industry is poised to strengthen its competitive position in a wide range of technological areas and societal challenges. The most recent announcement of the French government to launch “Nano2017”, a public/private partnership of EUR 3.5 billion for nanoelectronics in Grenoble, is to be seen as a part of this ambitious initiative. According to Neelie Kroes, European Commissioner in charge of the Digital Agenda, the European vision is to reach a 20% share of world-wide semiconductor manufacturing by 2020. Is the vision set forth by the Commission realistic? What are the boundary conditions to achieve such an ambitious goal? ISS Europe will question the critical issues of that plan.
