Abstract
“Micro- and nano-electronics, including semiconductors, are essential for all goods and services which need intelligent control in sectors as diverse as automotive and transportation, aeronautics and space. Smart industrial control systems permit more efficient management of electricity generation, storage, transport and consumption through intelligent electrical grids and devices” states the communication from the European Commission about the importance of the Key Enabling Technologies for society and economy. We, at LFoundry, develop the technologies that are behind the development of the industries of interest for Europe, for the new frontier of the Digital Economy and some of the niches, like the Big Science, that can show a dramatic downstream in important sectors for the society, like the medical applications. Having the right set of skills and competencies is the pre-requisite to participate successfully in the development of the economy for our future in Europe and for the role that Europe will play in the world. In the speech we will talk about this tool set and how skills and soft competencies are both necessary to drive and adapt for a future which development must be built by ourselves, imaging the vision we’d like.
