The IPCEI-Microelectronics initiative: Tech solutions for the digital transformation, IoT and Industry 4.0

Webinar: The IPCEI-Microelectronics initiative: Tech solutions for the digital transformation, IoT and Industry 4.0
Organizers: STMicroelectronics, Bruno Kessler Foundation and the Italian Association for Industrial Research (Airi)
Date: A future date

Developing, designing, producing and using micro and nano electronics technologies is an enabling factor for any company willing to exploit the opportunities offered by the digital transformation and the Industry 4.0.

An integrated and multi-sectoral approach is needed to take advantage of these emerging trends: cooperation among research, tech developers and end-users, and in particular innovative SMEs, is key to develop novel applications fitting the needs of users, and as well launch new markets.

The IPCEI (Important Projects of Common European Interest) Microelectronics, notified by the European Commission on 2018 and that will end on 2024, received an overall funding of 1,75 billion euro, of which 524 million for Italy (other countries are Germany, France, UK). IPCEI aims to increase the production and innovation capacity of the national and European system, with a focus on five application fields: energy efficient chips, power semiconductors, smart sensors, advanced optical equipment, compound materials

The session will provide an overview on technological developments and applications of the IPCEI initiative, and it will be a first-hand opportunity for companies, research centres, and universities to network with key players of the micro-electronics and semiconductor field at national and EU level.

The focus will be on smart sensors and actuators technologies to develop IoT solutions for applications in the industrial, medical, environment, and transport sectors.
These topics will also be further discussed in the training workshop “School on nanotechnologies: processes and applications to sensors and actuators”, also part of the NanoInnovation Conference.
