The recent health and supply crisis have demonstrated the importance of the Semiconductor sector for the EU Societal needs and Industrial base. The idea that their supply chain is just a commodity has finally shown its limit in case of major political or economical difficulties. However the idea of a complete national or European autonomy in the electronics sector would have unbearable costs. The EU Chip Act is a response by the EU Commission and Member States to the current situation. This initiative has generated different reactions among the various actors and the legislation is following its course through the EU bodies. In this panel, representatives of the Commission, Industry and Academia will discuss the expected actions and impact of the Act.
