Peter, I do hope EU considers setting some of the money aside to create micro-seeds for chip startups. Big grants often leads to big waste. Putting aside 5% of the $6B program to fund one hundred early startups would give incredible long term ROI. $3M should be enough to go from concept to low volume production in many instances.

It all starts with convincing young people that it doesn't make sense anymore to pick an education aimed at earning "easy money" or get a diploma in a relaxing way. We have more than enough unemployed communication advisors, lawyers, economics etc. A technical profession is still considered difficult, low status, geeky, boring etc. People forget an economy can't sustain in the long term by just shifting "services".

I don't think there is a revenue model.... apart from tax and spend.... But to quote from the "Nanoelectronics beyond 2020" document: "The companies and institutes in Europe’s nanoelectronics ecosystem propose a strategic research and innovation program with a total investment of 100 billion € up to the year 2020. By 2020, the programme aims to increase Europe’s nanoelectronics-based world-wide revenues by over 200 billion € per year, and create an additional 250,000 direct and induced jobs in Europe."

a little too late for europe, a new leading edge 300mm fab is 6 billion dollars, 450nm I dont even know how much, so three of them? I dont think so, especially when only two foundries are making money, TSMC and SMIC everybody else is losing money.

Good Europe is backing FDSOI, I think its likely noone adopts Taiwan Semiconductor bulk Finfet due to high cost and process variation

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
