For more than a decade, Europe has been the wireless
continent; today, wireless has almost completely shifted to
the U.S. and Asia. This shift has had a profound impact
on the electronic, semiconductor, and design ecosystem:
long-time leaders have disappeared, or have abandoned
the wireless business/market. Europe needs to re-invent
itself once again. Is there a future for electronics, and IC
design and manufacturing in Europe? If so, what are the
applications, and the technologies that will bring Europe
back to the top of the world leadership? This panel
session, moderated by EPFL Professor Giovanni De
Micheli, will gather executives from the semiconductor,
IP, and R&D sectors to discuss the prospects of our
industry in Europe.
