The 5E project will underpin digitisation and support specifically the European electronics industry in seizing opportunities by federating – not merging – the 3 European electronics ecosystems, i.e. Nanoelectronics, Electronic Smart Systems, and Flexible and Wearable Electronics. Federation will be achieved by developing a joint vision based on a thorough analysis of the state of play of the 3 ecosystems according to a standardised taxonomy, and focusing on the interfaces between the areas, as well as on opportunities for collaboration and cross-fertilisation. A technology and application meta-roadmap will be elaborated and implemented at the levels of the 3 electronics ecosystems, the demand-side industries in application sectors, and the areas of digitisation, as well as on the European and regional policy levels.

Dedicated actions of 5E will further reinforce collaboration and outreach of the electronics industry across Europe - in all relevant value chains, sectors, areas and target groups – and at the international level, establishing and reinforcing international cooperation.

Targeted outreach and visibility actions aim at running EU-funded projects, large industry, SMEs, start-ups, but also at the demand-side, user communities and the wider public and include a toolbox, a digital library, digital showcase and a contest, thereby largely contributing to dissemination and exploitation, and hence to maximising impact. 5E will substantially contribute to all 8 impacts listed in the call, providing metrics (KPIs) for measuring and monitoring, and will additionally generate impact on the higher economic and societal levels.

1. Support industrial perspectives of the European Electronics ecosystems
2. Position Electronics as fundamental for digitisation
3. Foster collaboration and cross-fertilisation in Electronics
