Structural project to strengthen the productive and innovation capacity of the national semiconductor and microelectronics industry. Structural project to strengthen the productive and innovation capacity of the national semiconductor and microelectronics industry.
The microelectronics sector has faced difficulties in accessing and making components and systems available at European level, whether due to the impact of geopolitical tensions, scarcity of resources or the breakdown of distribution and production chains caused by the pandemic, which highlighted the dominance of the Asian market, and the need for Europe to have greater autonomy in this sector so influential and structural for the digital transition.
The Microelectronics Agenda was conceived in an integrated logic and close to the European initiatives IPCEI on Microelectronics and EU Chips Act, seeking to unlock the potential of the semiconductor industry and bring added value to European society and economy. The Agenda is the first step of the national response to the European need to overcome its systemic failures in the sector, through structural investments to strengthen productive capacity, innovation, capacity building and production of relevant information in the national semiconductor industry.
The Microelectronics Agenda involves a set of 17 partners and seeks to position Portugal at the forefront of the market for the management, production, distribution and recycling of semiconductors, capable of properly supplying Europe and other countries on a global scale.
Strengthen productive capacity and competitiveness in the area of microelectronics, in advanced packaging, industrialization of products based on integrated optical circuits, new high-speed access networks and technologies for industry 4.0.
