Associations that support the 5th SEMI Brussels Forum

25 associations representing industrial companies, the engineering sector, European regions, and EU programs support the SEMI Brussels Forum.

AENEAS (Association for European NanoElectronics ActivitieS): AENEAS is a non-profit industrial association established under French law, that continues the activities of the ENIAC Platform and represents the Nanoelectronics RTD partners in the Joint Undertaking. It allows its members to participate in the Joint Technology Initiatives and provides the European Technology Platform with a legal backbone. Association to AENEAS is open to all European key players in Nanoelectronics, such as large industry, Small and Medium Enterprises, research institutes, academia, and associations. www.aeneas-office.eu

AEPI – Agence d’Etudes et de Promotion de l’Isère (France): Grenoble Isère-AEPI is the economic development agency for Grenoble-Isere/France. The Grenoble area, smart valley in southeastern France, is one of Europe’s top clusters in micro-nanotechnologies and derived applications. Working closely with Minatec-CEA-Leti as well as the industrial cluster Minalogic, AEPI provides complimentary information and services to companies exploring business opportunities. www.grenoble-isere.com

ARTEMIS (Advanced Research & Technology for EMbedded Intelligence and Systems): The ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking is, since 2008, the Public Private Partnership in embedded systems between the European Commission, 22 Member States and the ARTEMIS Industry Association. It adopts a commonly agreed research agenda for Europe developed by the ARTEMIS Industry Association. The research agenda is implemented by a work programme in order to build self-sustaining innovation ecosystems for European leadership in Embedded Systems. After 3 years of existence, 36 ARTEMIS projects show significant added value to the development of these ecosystems addressing key societal challenges such as Healthcare and wellbeing, Green, safe and supportive transportation and Smart Buildings and Cities of the Future. www.artemis.eu

ASD – AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe:

The AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe, ASD, represents the aeronautics, space, defence and security industries in Europe in all matters of common interest with the objective of promoting and supporting the competitive development of the sector. ASD pursues joint industry actions which require to be dealt with on a European level or which concern issues of an agreed transnational nature, and generates common industry positions. (ASD has 28 member associations in 20 countries across Europe and represents over 2000 companies with a further 80 000 suppliers, many of which are SMEs. The industry sectors employ around 696.000 people, with a turnover of over euro 154 billion. The President and the Chairman of the Council of ASD for 2009-2010 is Mr Domingo Ureña Raso, CEO of Airbus Military). www.asd-europe.org

ENIAC Joint Undertaking:

The ENIAC Joint Undertaking (JU) is a public-private partnership focusing on nanoelectronics that brings together ENIAC Member/Associated States, the European Commission, and AENEAS (an association representing European R&D actors in this field). It coordinates research activities through competitive calls for proposals to enhance the further integration and miniaturization of devices, and increase their functionalities while delivering new materials, equipment and processes, new architectures, innovative manufacturing processes, disruptive design methodologies, new packaging and ‘systemising’ methods. It will drive and be driven by innovative high-tech applications in communication and computing, transport, health care and wellness, energy and environmental management, security and safety, and entertainment. The ENIAC JU was set up in February 2008 and will allocate grants throughout 2013 and will execute the projects selected for funding till 31 December 2017. The total value of the R&D activities generated through this partnership upon its conclusion is estimated at 3 Beuro. www.eniac.eu
