NEXT 02/2023: Microelectronics

European microelectronics is booming, thanks in part to the European Chips Act, which came into force on September 21, 2023. But what does microelectronics actually mean? Why is Europe pushing for more sovereignty? How is Germany currently positioned as a semiconductor location? Why is Saxony booming and what role do European and international collaborations play in this? Our magazine offers you a compact overview and, if you are interested, directs you to further online articles.

Smart Systems
