SEMI Europe is an active participant in EU-funded projects, given its global member base and its position as the voice of the microelectronics industry.

The ongoing projects in which SEMI Europe takes part are:

  • ECoVEM – European Centre of Vocational Excellence in Microelectronics
  • IMOCO4.E - Intelligent Motion Control under Industry4.E 
  • MADEin4 - Metrology Advances for Digitized Electronic Components and Systems (ECS) Industry 4.0
  • METIS - Microelectronics Training, Industry and Skills
  • Pact for Skills

IMOCO4.E - Intelligent Motion Control under Industry4.E

Launched in 2021, and funded by the Electronic Component Systems for European Leadership Joint Undertaking, the mission of the IMOCO4.E project is to improve Industry 4.0 manufacturing productivity. IMOCO4.E aims to deliver a reference platform consisting of AI and digital twin toolchains and a set of mating building blocks for resilient manufacturing applications. The platform’s benefits will be directly verified in applications for semiconductor, packaging, industrial robotics and healthcare. The project will demonstrate the results in other generic “motion-control-centred” domains affecting the entire value chain of the production automation and application markets.


METIS -Microelectronics Training, Industry and Skills

Addressing the skills shortage is a priority for an elevated competitiveness of the European microelectronics sector. An important step in this direction is a stronger industry and education collaboration. Under the coordination of SEMI, the METIS consortium, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme, is uniquely positioned to bridge this gap, as it will implement a new strategic approach to sectoral cooperation on skills for microelectronics by involving the key players across industry, education & training and regulatory/certification bodies.


The Pact for Skills for microelectronics is a new engagement and governance program to support Upskilling and Reskilling, to attract “new talent”, and to unlock EU and national/ regional funding.

The Pact was launched by commissioners Breton and Schmit and represents a strong and timely signal for our microelectronics industry, recognizing the the priority to create a well-skilled European workforce on microelectronics R&D, Design, and manufacturing.

Many partners, Industry, R&D hubs, Education providers and NGOs have already endorsed the Pact.


ECoVEM – European Centre of Vocational Excellence in Microelectronics

ECoVEM, launched in 2020, brings together 21 partners from 7 countries, representing Vocational Education and Training (VET) centers, polytechnics, industrial associations, and social partners. The project will establish the European Cooperation Platform of Vocational Excellence in Microelectronics to help cultivate the talent needed to continue to drive digitalization and AI and green technology innovation while achieving gender equality and increasing the number of migrants working in the industry.


MADEin4 - Metrology Advances for Digitized Electronic Components and Systems (ECS) Industry 4.0

MADEin4 is a consortium of 47 partners from 10 countries connecting the full range of supply chain: from semiconductor equipment manufacturers and system-integrating metrology companies to RTOS and key applications such as the automotive industry.  The MADEin4 Project develops next generation metrology tools, machine learning methods and applications in support of Industry 4.0 high volume manufacturing in the semiconductor manufacturing industry.
