Workshop on opportunities for dual-use technologies: Components

Workshop on opportunities for dual-use technologies SQUARE


Avenue Beaulieau 25, room S1, Brussels, Belgium

This workshop which is organised jointly between the European Commission, ECSEL Joint Undertaking and the European Defence Agency (EDA) will take place in Brussels, 28 June 2016.

The security and non-dependence of the supply of specific electronic components are major concerns for Europe. Research and Innovation programmes run by the European Commission (EC), the Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership Joint Undertaking (ECSEL JU) and the European Defence Agency (EDA) address technologies in electronic components and systems areas such as sensors, new materials and advanced digital systems. This workshop will focus on dual-use of electronic component technologies.

Closer cooperation in research and innovation would contribute to a better leveraging and a more efficient use of private and public investments contributing to Europe’s growth and competitiveness

The objective of the workshop is to present projects in areas where commonalities can be jointly exploited. It will encourage the debate on different ways to improve cooperation for fostering dual-use component technologies, as recommended in the report of the High-level Group on Key Enabling Technologies. The workshop will address, among others, non-dependence, common requirements but also differences.

The registration to this workshop is free of charge and has to be done by 10 June 2016.  The number of places is limited.
