Focus areas

AENEAS focuses on three main areas of opportunity for high demand growth that have a good fit with European strengths and skills in micro- and nano-electronics-enabled components and systems

  • Areas where Europe is strong and there is above average growth in the electronic content, e.g., automotive, energy, industrial automation and security.
  • New high growth areas, in particular Internet of Things (IoT), where industry in Europe is well positioned to benefit from the development of ‘Smart-X’ markets, including e-Health.
  • Markets in the changing landscape of mobile convergence which constitute opportunities to be captured, e.g., by securing leadership in industry digitalisation through Industry 4.0.

Global societal challenges double as lead market drivers for the value chain in each of these main areas. ‘Smart, green and integrated transport’, e.g., creates demand in electric and automated driving, and ‘Secure, clean and efficient energy’ pushes requirements for power electronics and cybersecurity.
