Telecommunications and microelectronics: How should Europe (re)-act?

Tuesday, 7 June 2022, 14:00.15:30/16:00-17:30, Room C238
  • Alexandros Kaloxylos (6G Smart Networks and Services Industry Association (6G-IA))

Motivation and Background

The COREnect project is bringing together the most prominent European industrial and academia players as well as industry associations in the network, microelectronics, and verticals domains to jointly develop a high-level strategic roadmap of core subsystem and component technologies for supporting future connectivity. The goal is to establish a sustainable European technology sovereignty in 5th Generation (5G) and beyond, promote innovation and business opportunities e.g., for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), pave the way for one or more future European champions in this area, and lay a solid foundation for the long-term success of both industries.

Based on the initially identified COREnect end-to-end system view with a value chain consideration, COREnect has organised three Expert Groups (EGs) to address the three strategic focus areas within the industry roadmap:

  • Expert Group #1 Compute and Store
  • Expert Group #2 Connect and Communicate
  • Expert Group #3 Sense and Power

The purpose of this workshop is to present the key findings of these EGs (i.e., a roadmap on how Europe should (re)act in this area) at a broad ICT audience. Moreover, after 2 years of intensive activities COREnect’s recommendations will be presented. The feasibility of these recommendations will be discussed in a panel of leading experts in the area.

As the EuCNC conference is major event that attracts all key European stakeholders, it offers a unique opportunity to disseminate these findings as the results of COREnect, but also allow the exchange of ideas and opinions from the participants from the telecommunications’ sector. Towards this end, the scheduled panel will also operate as an interactive event with the participants.
