Visions of ECS beyond 2030

Electronic Components and Systems long term value chain challenges

The scientific bodies of the 3 Industry Associations AENEAS, ARTEMIS-IA and EPoSS are currently working on the annual update of the Long Term Vision chapter of the ECS Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA). The objective of this chapter is to identify the research subjects that need to be addressed now at low TRL level, as foundation and preparation for developments in  European industry over the next decade. As the lead time from scientific breakthrough to the market launch of a product based on this approach is  typically above 10 years, it is essential to detect the early signs of emerging industrial trends to feed the “innovation pipeline”  ensuring the future success of European economy and society.

A workshop is therefore organised online, to give the ECS community at large the opportunity to learn about the topics and priorities as identified so far, and bring their own contribution to this chapter.


The workshop will start with the leaders of the Long Term Vision chapter of the ECS SRIA providing the audience with an overview of the main trends and ideas that they plan to address in the version of this year. This will complemented by inputs gathered during the KDT workshops organized in May and June by the 3 industry associations. The major part of the workshop will then be devoted to specific presentations on trends in digitalisation as well as on status and expected advances in the contributing key technologies by renowned experts. A Q&A session with the audience will follow, before the main ideas exchanged during the session are summarized to conclude the workshop.


This programme is preliminary to changes.
