This is the sixth edition of the Electronic Components and Systems (ECS) Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (ECS-SRIA) which was developed by the experts of the ECS community, coordinated by the three industry associations: AENEAS, EPoSS and Inside.
The ECS-SRIA describes the major challenges and priorities, and the necessary R&D&I efforts to tackle them, in the area of the electronics components and systems, and systems of systems, spanning the entire ECS value chain, from foundational and cross-sectional technologies to application fields.
It is an open, living and funding-programme agnostic document, reporting the industry objectives, the societal benefits and the strategic advantages for Europe, for the next 10-15 years: the ECS-SRIA is the reference document for KDT Work Programme 2023 and for the EUREKA Clusters (e.g. Xecs), but it can inspire other EU programmes.
Based on analysis of the major application fields where Europe must maintain and/or develop its leadership, and of its current and foreseeable technology capabilities, the ECS-SRIA aims to identify the main focus areas for research and innovation in Europe, in the domain of Electronic Components and Systems and Key Digital Technologies.
The ECS-SRIA is updated every year to reflect the market trends, dynamics of our industry, the evolution of technology, the application fields and the long term vision. This continuous process will enable all ECS stakeholders to be constantly informed about new emerging technologies, potential game-changers and markets evolution.
