re: Silicon Europe seeks to boost R&D, manufacturing

I think Silicon Europe it is about public relations. The R&D budget is at the level of the contributing organizations. Silicon Europe is about "synchronization" of effort and about persuading politicians and the general public in Europe that micro- and nanoelectronics is strategic to the future wealth of the continent. Once that PR battle is won larger subsidies can flow to help Europe compete against U.S. and Asia. I feel sure the participants would argue that any such subsidies would be just "leveling the playing field" as other regions tech firms are already subsidized. And I am equally sure regions would probably cry "foul."

So Peter, what is this organization really about? Is this about real research or just public relations? Are they trying to pool resources to make the equivalent of another IMEC?

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
