The NEREID project has produced the “NanoElectronics Roadmap for Europe”

The roadmap highlights medium to long term recommendations for strengthening the European competitiveness in this domain, opening the doors to many new markets. ICREA Prof. Dr Clivia Sotomayor-Torres, Group Leader of the ICN2 Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures Group, acted as contributing author of the document and coordinated the chapter “Beyond CMOS”, which reflects contributions by other ICN2 researchers.

The NEREID project (“NanoElectronics Roadmap for Europe: Identification and Dissemination”) has produced the “NanoElectronics Roadmap for Europe”, focused on the requirements of European semiconductor and application industries. This project has brought together technology and market through a series of workshops which involved more than 100 international experts.

The final roadmap for European micro- and nanoelectronics, highlights medium to long term recommendations for strengthening the European competitiveness in this domain, opening the doors to many new markets. It is intended as input for future research programmes at European and National levels and therefore its acts as guideline for both private and public actors.

The NEREID roadmap is divided into several main technology sectors: Advanced Logic (including Nanoscale FETs and Memories) and Connectivity, Functional Diversification (Smart Sensors, Smart Energy, Energy for Autonomous Systems), Beyond-CMOS (Emerging Devices and Computing Paradigms), Heterogeneous Integration and System Design, Equipment, Materials and Manufacturing Science, and it also includes cross-functional enabling domains.

ICREA Prof. Dr Clivia Sotomayor-Torres, Group Leader of the ICN2 Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures Group, acted as contributing author of the document and coordinated the chapter “Beyond CMOS”. Among the acknowledgements of this part of the document are reflected the contributions by other members from the same Group (Emigdio Chavez Ángel, Jeremie Maire), from the ICN2 Theory and Simulation Group (Pablo Ordejón, Francesca Constanzo) and from the Physics and Engineering of Nanodevices Group (Marius Costache).
