ECSEL Joint Undertaking: The New European Programme for the Electronics Sector

Dr. Yves Gigase

Head of Programmes, ENIAC

Abstract: In a short while Europe will have a new instrument to tackle the challenges of the electronics sector: ECSEL Joint Undertaking. 
In this presentation I will first discuss those challenges for to the nano-electronics industry and how the ENIAC Joint Undertaking responded to it. Its set-up, functioning, and results over the first 6 years of existence will be presented. Then I will briefly highlight the specificities of two other organizations ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking and the EpoSS platform. It is those two organizations that will merge with ENIAC JU to form ECSEL JU. I will finish by lifting the veil on some of the features of ECSEL JU for as far as they are already known.

 

About the speaker: Dr. Yves Gigase is the Head of Programmes of the ENIAC Joint Undertaking.  Prior to joining ENIAC JU, he has been working 3 years for the European Commission as Programme Officer in the Radioactive Waste Management programme s for Russia and Central Asia.  Before that he occupied manager and/or researcher positions in several companies active in optoelectronics, electronic consumer goods, consulting and telecommunication. He holds an MSE in Applied physics and a PhD in Optoelectronics, both from the University of Gent. He did two postdocs one at the IBM Research Labs in Zurich and one at the Optical Computing Systems Centre at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He is an IEEE member.

 

ECSEL Introduction: The new Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership (ECSEL) Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) is a merger of the ARTEMIS embedded systems JTI and the ENIAC nanoelectronics JTI set up in 2008. Electronic systems and components such as semiconductors and computer chips are essential to all digital products and services. They underpin innovation and competitiveness in all economic sectors. Cars, planes, trains, medical and health equipment, home appliances, energy networks and security systems all will benefit from the advanced European capability and capacity to design and manufacture state of the art electronic components and systems.

 

The new ECSEL JTI is expected to start in early 2014 and to be fully operational up to 2020 followed by a running down phase to 2024. It will bring together large companies, world-class European research and technology organizations linked with higher education research labs, and SMEs providing technology and services. In particular three private industrial associations representing the actors from the areas of micro-/nanoelectronics, smart integrated systems and embedded/cyber-physical systems will be involved.

 

Total budget: 4.815 billion Euros.

Next Call:  mid 2014
