Key questions to be debated at the 6th Brussels Forum include:

  • What funding and investment schemes are  needed to grow KET development in Europe and how will different EU funding programs and instruments come together to move KET from fundamental R&D to  competitive manufacturing?
  • How will the European Commission, Member States, and Industry coordinate their efforts and initiatives to fully implement the recommendations of the KET High Level Group?

This year‘s SEMI Brussels Forum is timed when the EU is working on several integrated and pertinent initiatives, namely:

Through a series of keynotes and panel discussions, industry leaders and EU representatives will discuss practical recommendations on some of Europe‘s Key Enabling Technologies, in particular to address the needs of the European semiconductor industry. The debate is envisaged with the active participation of the attendees, the presentations and panels will be open for comments and questions.
