EFECS is the international forum to Create impact by collaborative innovation! For an autonomous and sustainable Europe along the Electronic Components and Systems value chain in Europe. Therefore the organisers of this event, AENEAS, EPoSS and Inside have joined forces to bring all stakeholders together on 24-25 November 2022 in Amsterdam at Beurs van Berlage, to Create impact by Collaborative Innovation together!
This is the fifth edition and an update of the ECS Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (ECS-SRIA) which was jointly developed by the members of the three industry associations: AENEAS, EPoSS and Inside. This edition will be the basis for proposals for KDT Call 2 and Xecs call 2. It describes the Major Challenges and priorities, and the necessary R&D&I efforts to tackle them, in the area of the electronics components and systems, and systems of systems, spanning the entire ECS value chain, from foundational and cross-sectional technologies to application fields.

Create impact for Europe with the Chips Act
While semiconductors and chips are considered as the engines of the green and digital transitions, their production relies on complex and vulnerable supply chains. In the current challenging geo-political environment, with shortages in supply and skills and with war at the door, Europe must analyse its strengths and weaknesses and take action to stay healthy and competitive.

Talent shortage, gender imbalance, public defiance towards technology. Can science help us?
Session organised by the Scientific Councils of AENEAS, EPoSS and Inside, moderated by Patrick Cogez (Technical Director, AENEAS). After a summary of the outcomes of the workshop organised previously on “Promising Technologies for ECS”, the bulk of the workshop will explore how the scientific community can help the ECS industry to meet non purely technical challenges which impair its development, such as the growing public defiance towards technology, the talent shortage, and the gender imbalance. These subjects will be addressed by a panel gathering Christopher Frieling (Director Advocacy and Public Policy, SEMI Europe), Dimitrios Serpanos (President of Computer Technology Institute and Press DIOPHANTUS, Professor at University of Patras), Ina Sebastian (Vice President for Research and Innovation Policy, Infineon Technologies AG), and Suzanne Lesecq (Research Director, European Programme Manager, CEA-LETI).
