The METIS project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme and coordinated by SEMI Europe, embodies EU excellence in microelectronics, connecting microelectronics industry start-ups, SMEs and large firms with national and EU industry associations, formal educational providers and regulatory bodies in the field of accreditation and certification.
METIS aims to bridge the skills gap in microelectronics for a more competitive Europe. To do that, we are bringing together stakeholders from all facets of the value chain to develop a comprehensive Microelectronics Skills Strategy, providing much-needed skills intelligence for the sector.
In particular, the goal of the Microelectronics Skills Strategy is to provide up-to-date skills intelligence by:
“The European electronics industry is facing an acute shortage of skills in all tiers of its value chain […]. A sustainable provision of qualified personnel is key to maintain competitiveness and innovation leadership. […] I welcome the fact that SEMI and its 19 partners from 14 countries launched METIS.”
Nicolas Schmit, European Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights
