COREnect Policy Workshop- An Action Plan for European Leadership in Digital Infrastructures

16 May 2022

On 16 June 2022, 10.00-13.00 CET, the COREnect Policy Workshop will take place online.

The COREnect Policy Workshop brings together stakeholders from the microelectronics and connectivity domains, from public authorities as well as private organisations, to discuss the priorities and recommendations from the COREnect roadmap, and how to implement the concrete steps required to achieve European leadership in microelectronics and connectivity within the next 10 years through a concrete action plan.

This should lead to defining a concrete way forward bringing Chips act into reality in the domain of connectivity, building a solid foundation towards a prosperous European digital decade, through the constitution of a combined microelectronics and connectivity European ecosystem.

Gerhard Fettweis, Vodaphone Chair Professor, TUD, COREnect project coordinator will introduce the workshop while a high-level representative of the European commission will  detail the Chips Act – A European Strategy on semiconductors in 6G systems for the Digital Decade

The roadmap for Strengthening European Leadership on Microelectronics and Connectivity will be presented and followed by 2 panels. The first one will outline what the required strategic actions would be to address EU concerns on its autonomy in trusted critical connectivity infrastructures while the second one will focus on the existing and planned European landscape to invest and provide policy support for implementing an innovative and vibrant microelectronics and connectivity ecosystem, and an abundant pool of skills & competence.

Join the workshop and hear from high-level speakers from the European Commission, the  Public Authorities, the Industry and the Associations. More about the agenda here.
