The report “Digital Directions, Greener Connections: An Industrial Policy Report on European Electronics Manufacturing”, written by DECISION in partnership with IPC, was released in April 2021
On April 20, 2021, DECISION presented the strategy to face the employment and skills challenges of the European microelectronics industry at the SEMI Europe Industrial Strategy Symposium.
This strategy was developed in 2020 as part of the METIS project (MicroElectronics Training, Industry and Skills), a skills alliance co-financed by Erasmus+ and bringing together 19 partners from 14 different European countries (Infineon, Bosch, X-FAB, IMEC, etc.).
METIS will result in the construction of the first common European training platform in the microelectronics sector, allowing employers, universities and students to be connected from one region to another.
The report “Electronic components and systems: markets, objectives, challenges and required achievements for the European digital age “, written by ECS-SRIA, AENEAS, ARTEMIS, and EPoSS, has been published. It was co-written with DECISION Etudes & Conseil.
On January 28, DECISION will attend the SIA CESA Automotive Electronics digital edition 2021.
The study on the competitiveness of the EU engineering industries and the impact of digitization, carried out by DECISION for the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises, is made public. It was carried out in partnership with CSES, KMU, IDEA and Prognos.
On November 11, Commissioners Schmit and Breton officially launched the European Pact for Skills, a central element of the skills strategy in Europe. This pact has three components corresponding to key industrial ecosystems: automotive manufacturing, microelectronics and the aerospace and defense industry.
Microelectronics Pact initiatives are expected to attract € 2 billion in public and private investment to train more than 250,000 workers and students in the electronics sector in Europe between 2021 and 2025.
DECISION is part of the METIS project and of the grouping of organizations that endorse and support the European Microelectronics Skills Pact since its inception, notably alongside SEMI and industry leaders in Europe (Bosch, Infineon, ASML, XFab, etc.).
On November the 25th, DECISION spoke at the EFECS roundtable on “The COVID-19 crisis and emerging opportunities”, with Dr. Lucilla Sioli (Director for “Artificial Intelligence and Digital Industry” within DG CONNECT), Michael Wiesmüller (Austrian Federal Ministry), Lars Reger (CTO of NXP) and other participants.
The report “Rethinking Strategic Autonomy in the Digital Age”, released in November 2020 by the European Political Strategy Centre (EPSC), uses figures and expertise from DECISION Études & Conseil.
The Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda 2021 for Electronic Components and Systems (ECS SRIA 2021) has been released in November 2020 and use figures and expertise from DECISION Études & Conseil. The three industry associations AENEAS, ARTEMIS-IA and EPoSS have joined forces to federate actors along the entire value chain to produce this SRIA while gathering more than 250 experts from across Europe.
The German Federal Government’s Framework Program for Research and Innovation 2021-2024 (BMBF), published in November 2020, use figures and expertise from DECISION Études & Conseil.
The Observatory of the Digital Trust and Cybersecurity in France (2020 edition), made by DECISION, has been released in September 2020
The study “Emerging technologies in electronic components and systems (ECS) – Opportunities ahead (SMART 2018-0005)”, carried out by DECISION for the European Commission (DG CONNECT) in 2019, has been made public.
The Observatory of the French Industrial Security Sector, carried out by DECISION for the French Strategic Sector Committee (CSF) of the security industries in 2020, has been made public.
In the context of the METIS project, co-led by DECISION Etudes & Conseil, we are pleased to share with you the article by Nicolas Schmit, European Commissioner Jobs and Social Rights:
“Towards Closing the Skills Gaps in the European Microelectronics Industry appreciating and endorsing the METIS project, inviting us to keep up the work”
Launched in late 2019, the METIS project aims at addressing the shortcomings in microelectronics education, skills and employability, paving the way for EU leadership in data driven technologies through permanent anticipation of skills and competences, developing and delivering joined innovative training programmes.
DECISION is part of the METIS consortium (MicroElectronics Training, Industry and Skills)
Launched in late 2019, the METIS project aims at addressing the shortcomings in microelectronics education, skills and employability, paving the way for EU leadership in data driven technologies through permanent anticipation of skills and competences, developing and delivering joined innovative training programmes.
The project is a consortium of 20 partners from 14 countries and brings together very big companies such as Infineon, Bosch, X-FAB as well world-class R&D hubs such as imec. It is expected to build a common training platform across the EU in the microelectronics sector. This will address an important gap as the EU microelectronics sector is a cluster-driven sector and there was a lack of a common pan-European platform to connect employers and universities and learners across regions.
On November the 20th 2019, in Helsinki, DECISION has presented the results of its study on the emerging technologies impacting the world electronic value, carried out for the European Commission DG CONNECT.
The presentation took place from 12:40 to 13:20 at the speakers corner.
The presentation focused on 3 points:
– A state of play of the world electronics industry, the position of the EU and the perspective up to 2023 by end-user market (automobiles, phones, PCs, etc.)
– What are the main emerging technologies in electronic components and systems? What are the opportunities for the EU?
– The growth opportunities in embedded & professional applications over the coming decade is an opportunity for the EU thanks to its strengths in these domains. Yet, there are five applications with a growing importance in embedded & professional sectors where the EU might suffer from weaknesses : Embedded software, data management & analysis, high-processing capabilities components (More Moore, edge AI, etc.), automotive batteries and to a lesser extent communication networks (5G and IoT networks).
The “Strategic Contract of the French Electronics Industry 2018-2022”, which was signed by Bruno Le Maire and the entire profession in March 2019, integrates DECISION’s figures on the global electronic value chain.
