Semiconductors are at the core of our world’s digital transformation, but global supply is currently struggling to meet the rapidly increasing demand driven by smartphones, Internet of Things and partly or fully autonomous vehicles, drones and robotic systems. Europe needs to strive for more autonomy when it comes to the development and production of semiconductors.

On 8 February 2022, the European Commission proposed a European Chips Act to counter semiconductor shortages and strengthen Europe’s technological leadership. 

The EuroTech Brussels Office invites all interested stakeholders to a EuroTech Policy Deep Dive on 5 May 2022.
