D4: European strenghts and gaps in emerging semiconductor technologies


Dissemination Workshop


Half day, 13:30


Room 2


International cooperation is key for speeding up technological innovation, and will allow to strengthen Europe’s position in global value chains in this area, which is one of the objectives of the EU Chips Act. This SINANO/ICOS workshop will gather an overview of the main EU and International activities in leading countries in the field of semiconductors, with the most promising technologies for possible international collaborations. In particular, the future technologies in advanced computation and future technologies for advanced functionalities, covering smart sensors, smart energy, energy harvesting for autonomous systems and semiconductor-based photonics will be presented and discussed by renowned experts.
