For years, many industry challenges have gone unnoticed in our daily lives. However, the global chip shortage and massive supply chain delays have emphasized the importance of the semiconductor industry in Europe. “With the entry into force of the European Chips Act, Europe takes a decisive step forward in determining its own destiny”, stated Thierry Breton, Commissioner for Internal Market. To mark this unprecedented EU legislation, leaders in the electronic components and systems sector gather together for the Chips for Europe event. With the presence of Commissioner Breton, MEPs, CEOs, CTOs, SMEs, RTOs, and high-level public authority figures will deliver crucial political and industrial messages regarding the Chips Act and Chips JU’s ambitions. Additionally, the event will celebrate the establishment of the new Chips Joint Undertaking, a collaborative effort aimed at bolstering Europe’s position in the global semiconductor industry. This event provides a unique opportunity to gain insights into the European strategy for strengthening Europe’s semiconductor ecosystem and understand Chips JU’s mission and program comprehensively.
