When the chips are down

14th February 2022

New report published on the future of Europe’s semiconductor industry highlights the importance of innovation, clusters and deep tech.

The ongoing shortage of computer chips has demonstrated the criticality of global semiconductor supply chains but has highlighted serious deficiencies in security of supply.

Semiconductor technologies are central to national security, communications, healthcare and of course, consumer products and services.

Earlier this month the EU Chip Act was launched, promising to re-establish Europe as a major global player in semiconductor manufacturing and better manage its dependency on the rest of the world.

The Chips for Europe programme recognises the value of open access facilities that facilitate collaborative research and development that enable “fabless” business models.

A new report on “The Future of Europe’s Semiconductor Industry: Innovation, Clusters and Deep Tech” has been prepared by Professor Robert Huggins (Cardiff University), Professor Andrew Johnston (Coventry University), Professor Max Munday (Cardiff University), and Dr Chen Xu (Cardiff University).
