Chips for Europe by EuroTech Universities

In light of the publication of the European Chips Act in February 2022, we organised a EuroTech Policy Deep Dive on 5 May 2022 on the university perspective of the Commission’s proposal.

Chips for Europe

On 5 May 2022, we organised an online EuroTech Policy Deep Dive “Chips for Europe – Capitalising on our strengths in semiconductor innovation and skills”, highlighting the views of universities on the European Chips Act, published by the European Commission earlier in the year. We were happy to welcome the following distinguished speakers:

Dive deeper

All six EuroTech Universities are active in research and education around the development and design of semiconductor chips. Find below three examples of how this looks like in practice. The directors of DTU Nanolab and OMEGA – Microelectronics Center of École Polytechnique were on stage at the above-mentioned event.
