21 Oct Nanoelectronics as Future Key Technology of Information and Communication Technology in Germany
National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech) 2011
As a basic and key technology, nanoelectronics is of fundamental importance for large areas of industrial production and value creation. Based on Germany’s great tradition and strong position in the field of semi-conductor technology as well as Germany’s strong position in terms of research in nanotechnology and nanoelectronics, the increase in the outsourcing of production locations closer to future target markets in Asia is viewed with considerable concern. The study on hand is to be understood as a recommendation for further action to bring it about that the main players in policy and industry draw the requisite factual and technical conclusions for a concerted action in the areas of industrial policy and research funding.
