Invitation to stakeholders: let’s design the future of microelectronics skills together!

In the framework of the METIS project, we are launching various thematic focus groups composed of key industry and education stakeholders that will meet virtually 1-2 times from April to June 2020. The focus groups will:

  • analyse the trends affecting skills development in the sector,
  • pinpoint skill mismatches between current workforce skills and the industry needs and
  • provide foresight scenarios for the future of the sector.

The outcomes will feed into the Microelectronics Skills Strategy, a comprehensive report that will be published in the beginning of 2021 and will provide updated microelectronics skills intelligence and policy recommendations for Europe.

For this, your experience and input is valuable! You are cordially invited to express your interest in this link, according to your specialisation and interests. We will soon get back to you with more information about the timing of the online meetings.

The thematic focus groups organised by METIS:

  1. Materials for Semiconductors – Microelectronics skills issues from the point of view of materials companies
  2. Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment РMicroelectronics skills issues from the point of view of semiconductor manufacturing equipment companies
  3. Semiconductor Devices and Systems Manufacturing – Microelectronics skills issues from the point of view of semiconductor manufacturing companies
  4. Semiconductor Devices and Systems Design – Microelectronics skills issues from the point of view of semiconductor design companies
  5. Edge AI – Microelectronics skills/knowledge needed to harness the potential of Edge AI
  6. Microelectronics and automotive – Microelectronics skill needs in automotive (e.g. autonomous driving)
  7. Diversity in electronics РThe position of women and other under-represented groups in the microelectronics industry
  8. Validation of Education – Good practices developed within Erasmus+ projects / Assessing differences among national education & training systems
  9. EU Policy Perspective – The view of policy makers
  10. Education 4.0 – The perspective of education on new skills needs in electronics manufacturing in the view of industry 4.0
