On 5 July at 03:00 PM, Eurochambres together with DIHK will host the webinar “The European Chips Act: are we getting it right?”. This joint event aims to discuss this topic with representatives from the EU institutions and businesses.

European Businesses are suffering from the global chips shortage, making a dent in their production capacity. At the same time growing geopolitical tensions have increased doubts about the reliability of current semiconductor value chains in general. The European Commission therefore proposed a Chips Act in February 2022 in order to “bolster Europe's competitiveness, resilience and help achieve both the digital and green transition”. The ambitions of the Chips Act are steep, but does it match businesses’ needs?

During the event we will discuss what is needed from a business point of view to create a stronger semiconductor ecosystem in the EU. What sizes of chips are needed to ensure security of supply for the European industry? Are the crisis response measures foreseen in the Chips Act appropriate to reach their goal?
