  2. 2. Outline I What's the Digital Agenda? II What's in it for Nanoelectronics? III Related Commission initiatives
  3. 3. My vision: “ Every European Digital” Neelie Kroes The Digital Agenda is part of the Europe 2020 Strategy. It aims at smart, sustainable and inclusive growth with ICT.
  4. 4. Why? <ul><li>from ICT as interesting </li></ul><ul><li>to ICT as hugely important </li></ul>

  8. 8. DAE: The role of Nanoelectronics <ul><li>Indirectly addressed </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Key Enabling Technology for the Digital Agenda </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Important “supplier of suppliers” across all subjects </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Directly addressed </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ICT research funding </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Involvement in setting strategic research agenda </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Indirect: Societal challenges Green ICT Measurement standards and requirements for ICT energy use New lighting paradigms (SSL = Solid State Lighting, OLED etc.) Intelligent transport systems eCall, telematic systems, etc. eHealth European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing Online Access to health records eGovernment eGovernment action plan 2010-2014, eProcurement, open data eCulture Europeana financing
  10. 10. Direct: ICT R&D&I More funding Double public annual funding to 11bn by 2020 Leverage more private investment for ICT research Pre-commercial procurement Better use of funding Reinforce the coordination and pooling of resources ‘ Light and fast’ access Deployment pilots with Member States Build eInfrastructures Enhance ICT research infrastructures EU-wide Cloud Computing Strategy
  11. 11. Related initiatives: Innovation Union EU2020: Innovation Union (06.10.2010) p. 12: &quot;industry driven priorities [should be] reinforced (including industry driven partnerships in areas such as key enabling technologies) in the research Framework Programme.&quot; p. 15: &quot;In 2011 the Commission will conduct a mid-term review of the State aid research and development and innovation framework clarifying which forms of innovation can be properly supported, including for key enabling technologies&quot;
  12. 12. Related initiatives: Industrial Policy EU2020: Industrial Policy (28.10.2010) p. 14: KET Initiative, European Technology Platforms, JTIs etc. p. 31: “the Commission will in 2011 consult with stakeholder on the best way to use and strengthen the industrial dimension of Joint Technology Initiatives and European Innovation Partnerships as announced in the Innovation Union Initiative, and on priorities in this respect.”
  13. 13. ENIAC/ARTEMIS Interim Evaluation <ul><li>Findings </li></ul><ul><ul><li>overall investment did not increase as much as expected </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>strategic objectives are insufficiently considered </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the innovation ecosystem is only partially covered </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>harmonisation and MS constraints not yet optimally addressed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>lack of synergy with EUREKA </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Strategic Recommendation </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;All parties should recommit to the European strategic aims of the JTIs” and continue tri-partite model beyond 2013. </li></ul>
  14. 14. What's Next? <ul><ul><li>Commission will report/comment JTI evaluation report before the end of 2010 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Together with HLG KET report mid-2011 important input for FP8 talks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>But without recommitment at the highest level it will be difficult to ensure instrument's future beyond 2013 (administrative simplification is not enough!) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Need to act now: Vice-President Kroes ready to consult with industry and MS to get most out of current JTIs. (R)evolution mid-term? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can we be more strategic, more focussed? How do we ensure JTI contribute optimally to next technological wave (450mm etc.)? Scope to better leverage R&D collaboration into products/manufacturing? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>We are interested in your individual and collective views. Think boldly! </li></ul></ul>
