Strategic challenges

A new Strategic Research Agenda for Electronic Components and Systems (ECS-SRA) is under construction, replacing the AENEAS Strategic Agenda. Initiated by the industrial associations AENEAS, ARTEMIS-IA and EPoSS, it will describe a common strategy for Digital RD&I based on inputs from over 250 experts from across Europe. A draft version  is now available. This will be used as a basis for discussion during the European Forum for Electronic Components & Systems (EFECS) conference in December, organised around the 10 themes listed below, covering all aspects of digital innovation.

At EFECS, chapter owners will describe the focus area covered and invite comment and feedback. This will be taken into account when the final agenda is published early in 2018. More information is available on the EFECS website.
