    Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership

    Joint Technology Initiative ECSEL

    The Public-Private Partnership keeping Europe at the forefront of technology development.

    Electronic components and systems (ECS) are a pervasive Key Enabling Technology, impacting all industrial branches and almost all aspects of life. A smartphone, a smart card, a smart energy grid, a smart city, even smart governance; everything “smart” is based on integrating semiconductor chips running embedded software. They provide the fabric on which the internet runs; they give life to portable phones and tablets; they drive driverless cars and trains, fly airliners, drones and satellites. In modern times, no national economy can win in the global competition without mastering this technology, with unparalleled systemic and strategic impact.
