The goal is to collect, align and discuss inputs to the definition of priority-topics as a basis for the discussion on priorities in the Work Programme for the first KDT call.
This workshop specifically addresses Micro-nano electronics-oriented topics as identified by the ECS community, and described in the various sections of the ECS SRIA 2021. The landscape will be set by the ECSEL-JU. Inputs on priorities in this field will be given by the ECS community and also be given from the public side by experts of the European Commission and the member states.
Digital technologies have proven their essential role in keeping our economies and societies running during the pandemic. At the same time, this pandemic has outlined the importance of the “brick and mortar” elements of all value chains. The workshop will focus on the fundamentals of the ECS value chain, i.e., the micro- and nanoelectronics components and their constitutive materials, as well as the manufacturing processes and equipment required for their fabrication.
If gaps in the ECS SRIA 2021 are detected, then these gaps are to be addressed in the ECS SRIA 2022.
The main basis for the discussion is Section 1.1 of the 2021 ECS SRIA, “Process Technologies, Equipment, Materials and Manufacturing”. It will more specifically address materials, process modules, integration technology and world-leading and sustainable semiconductor manufacturing equipment and technologies for novel devices and circuits for advanced computing and memory on the one hand, and advanced functionality on the other hand. These topics correspond to the scope of major challenges 1, 2 and 4 of section 1.1.
Other sections of the 2021 ECS SRIA also include relevant background information for this workshop, in particular section 2.1, Major Challenge 1 (Increasing the energy efficiency of computing systems), section 2.2, “Connectivity”, Major Challenge 1 (Strengthening the EU connectivity technology portfolio) and section 2.4, “Quality, Reliability, Safety and Cybersecurity”, Major Challenge 3 (Ensuring cyber-security and privacy)
The key contributors of the topic to the SRIA give an overview/explanation and the initial priority setting as meant by the SRIA team. Then the EC and some representatives of Participating States (PS) give their viewpoints, followed by contributions of representatives of other associations and industries with overlapping interests. Then a general discussion with all speakers by the moderator with inputs of the plenary.
