ZVEI: Strengthening Europe’s technological sovereignty through cross-industry cooperation

September 21, 2023. Cross-industry cooperation is more important than ever for Europe’s technological sovereignty. “The component industry, first and foremost semiconductors, but also in particular the printed circuit board industry and electronics manufacturing services (EMS) that are part of this, now play an even more important role for Europe’s industrial base. Only by working together is it possible to build a powerful microelectronics ecosystem,” said Nicolas-Fabian Schweizer (Schweizer Electronic AG) today at the annual meeting of the ZVEI Printed Circuit Boards and Electronic Systems (PCB-ES) trade association, where he was confirmed in his position as chairman.
