EU Chips Act: Realizing Europe’s ambition by 2030
2:20 pm - 7:00 pm
Hilton Vienna Park
Am Stadtpark 1
Thank you to all the participants who took part in the Industry Strategy Symposium Europe 2023. Save the date for the 2024 event, which will take place on March 7-8 in Vienna, Austria. Please review the 2023 event agenda below. The 2024 information will be available at a later stage.
DISTINGUISHED SPEAKERS 2023
The increase in the global demand for semiconductors, which is expected to double by 2030, has exposed the dependencies of the supply chain on large global actors and the potential frailties of this supply chain within certain geographies. This, in turn, has led governments around the world to consider their dependency on this vital commodity which is considered critical for key areas driving economies such as communications, security, and mobility.
This year’s SEMI Industry Strategy Symposium Europe - ISS Europe theme is “EU Chips Act: Realizing Europe’s Ambition by 2030”. The resilience of Europe’s Semiconductor sector in the face of the many challenges will be discussed, including the supply of talent and the growth of manufacturing capacity. The ability of Europe to remain relevant within the geopolitically influenced supply chain by exploiting its leading-edge R&D capacities and ability to produce disruptive technologies will also be explored.
DAY 1 | Wednesday, February 15
In recent years, supply chain disruptions have led to restrictions in the production of everything from cars to computers and medical equipment, emphasizing the vital role chips play in the global economy. Industry growth is expected to reach $1T USD by 2030, and the European Chips Act will be instrumental in enabling European progress to maintain its competitive advantage and leadership.
In this session, speakers will present on how the industry will grow exponentially to meet the increased demand for semiconductors, driven by mega trends IoT, automotive, digitization, electrification, healthcare, cloud and edge computing, and machine learning.

When Changing the World isn’t Enough: How Edwards is Tempting Talent
Skills Needs of the European Microelectronics Industry (METIS Project): Current Situation, Shortage and Recommendations
Panel Discussion: Closing the Talent Gap and Cultivating the Workforce of Tomorrow
Moderator: Cassandra Melvin, Senior Director of Business Development & Operations, SEMI Europe
Semiconductor manufacturing is an essential business across all regions of the world. Today there are more ambitious plans for investments in new and existing fabs than ever before. Across the value chain, the semiconductor industry has the urgent need of introducing smarter, sustainable manufacturing solutions to enable growth and reach sustainability goals.
The focal point of this session is to demonstrate how the introduction of more automation, data analytics, and processing, novel approaches to manufacturing, as well as resource-saving technologies, provides the opportunity – and the necessity – for all stakeholders to work collaboratively to achieve industry sustainability goals and pave the way to Net Zero.
