The EU Chips Act: Asserting Europe’s place in the global tech race

DIGITALEUROPE invites you to the first event of the Digital Deep Dives series, where they will take an in-depth look at the EU Chips Act and the impact it will have on European industry.

The EU wants to regain a 20% share of global chip production by 2030. To do so, it will need to boost its chip production four times as much in less than a decade. There is no time to lose: the Commission’s EU Chips Act can enhance semiconductor leadership in Europe if we get it right.

During our interactive debate, we will hear from both key EU policymakers involved in the legislative process and critical industry actors on both ends of the semiconductor supply chain, from producers to end-users.
