We proudly present the draft of the seventh edition of the Electronic Components and Systems (ECS) Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (ECS-SRIA) shaped by the experts of the ECS community and coordinated by the three industry associations: AENEAS, EPoSS and Inside.
This edition reflects on the most recent technological and strategic trends of the ECS industry and supports the European Chips Act that entered into force on 21 September 2023. In particular, it builds on the ECS SRIA 2023 amendment which, for the first time, links the SRIA research focus areas to the Design Platform and Pilot Lines to be implemented by the Chips JU.
It addresses in more detail AI evolution, AI adoption in ECS, and along their life cycle. While already present in earlier editions, quantum technologies, a priority of the European Chips Act, are getting additional attention in this new edition. Finally, this edition develops a tighter integration with the research topics identified by the Open Source Hardware and Software Working Group report, issued in November 2021 which proposed a roadmap to enable Europe to become a global player in this field and ensure sovereignty.
This draft 2024 edition will be presented on 1st December 2023 at the Chips JU launch Event “Chips for Europe”. From now on it is open for community contributions: please submit your feedback by 10 December 2023 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
