Good Intentions. But honestly I doubt the outcomes. Atleast its good news for NXP/INFN/ST/Atmel and their employees. Doing "20 percent of global chip production." competitively, in Europe , is a highly ambitious target.

It will be interesting to see the affect of this money spread, apparently, across the whole region and supply chain. ...BTW there's chip design in Milan?

7 years is a good time frame - I hope it goes into education, and the next generation of engineers. That way the companies/fabs/investments will come to us..

I am sorry, but I fear Europe has missed the boat. Even billions of euros from the tax payers will not change that. Anyway, I believe in the future of the software industry, IT consulting and services. So, let's spend the money better for those projects.

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

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.

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."
