The round table

The Round Table has a self-explanatory title. It shall explore "Strategic perspectives on Romanian micro-/nanoelectronics as Romania chairs the Council of the EU". In Romania, the private sector employs more than 20,000 in this domain - many of them working in research and innovation. At the Round Table, high-level representatives of leading companies active in Romania will come together with representatives of the academic and institutional research and public authorities to explore which goals could be set, which actions shall to be taken and which means will have to be applied by a country like Romania to maximize the economic and societal impact of this industry that defines the future of the economy and shapes the everyday life of all citizens. The accent will be on realistic and executable proposals enabling the country to progress towards the goals. The related events taking place in parallel in the EXCELNANO Forum showcase a number of communications at the cutting edge of the research that could be considered as potential contributions towards accelerating the progress of the country towards an innovative society, implementing the European policies to "re-finding" industry, and defining key topics to be pursued at the national and European level as Romania assumes the Chairmanship of the Council of the EU in the first half of the next year.
