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 Computing/Storage Core Technologies for Future network
• Expert Group #2 Communications/Sensing Core Technologies for Future network
• Expert Group #3 Peripheral Core Technologies for Future network

The purpose of this workshop is to present the key findings of these EGs at a broad ICT audience. Combining insights and expertise from the communication and microelectronics domain, the three expert groups will adress three key areas and share their sector-specific views points on: a) Electronics for Trustworthy Communication (6G and beyond), b) Future Core Technologies and Integration and c) Energy-efficient, Green Communication Electronics.

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