“ Europe is reviewing its copy for its support plan for the semiconductor sector ‘, Titles the Digital Factory, which sets a plan of 45 billion euros, against 43 billion in the original proposal.
The aim is to free up subsidies for foundries to increase their production capacity in Europe, thereby reducing dependence on Asian and American manufacturers:
“ Other changes have also been made to allow grants for a wider range of chips: these include chips that provide innovation in computing power, better energy efficiency, environmental gains, or artificial intelligence computation skills. »
The EU wants to achieve a 20% share of global semiconductor production by 2030 “, while it is only 8% today, compared to 24% in 2000, Reuters recalled.
EU ministers will meet on December 1 to approve the plan, which must be discussed with parliament sometime next year.
