The Agenda in numbers.
The Microelectronics Agenda invests in strategic areas such as increasing production capacity, advanced packaging technologies, high-speed access networks, integrated optical circuits and training human resources for the factories of the future.
The Microelectronics Agenda will run for 36 months, from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2024, to encourage research and development of innovative technologies in semiconductors and microelectronics in Portugal.
The 25 new products, processes and services resulting from the Agenda aim to transform the microelectronics sector and contribute to its resilience, competitiveness and ecological sustainability, and will enable the Portuguese ecosystem to monitor and anticipate the sector’s needs.
The Microelectronics Agenda has a significant financial investment to boost the research and development of advanced technologies in semiconductors and microelectronics, train human resources and promote the industrialization of these technologies in Portugal.
The Microelectronics Agenda is made up of a consortium of 17 partners, including companies, research institutions and universities, with the aim of encouraging research and development of advanced technologies in semiconductors and microelectronics in Portugal.
The ME Agenda is divided into twenty-one small collaborative projects, designed and structured to meet the objectives and goals proposed by the consortium members, in order to promote a national response to the systemic failures inherent in the European sector.
