EFECS key messages


The Electronic Components & Systems (ECS) Community is the key to unlocking the future development of the Digital Economy in Europe.

Without the full Engagement of the ECS Community, it will not be possible to reach the European and Global Sustainability targets that are essential to the future of our Society.


The ECS Community is expanding all the time, as new applications and systems are developed, based on our technology.

We must find a way of Engaging all relevant organisations - Large Enterprises, SMEs, Research Institutes and Academia - to work together, and with public authorities, on the technology challenges that we face as an economy and as a society.

“Our Digital Future” depends on it.
