MICROELECTRONICS - A CHALLENGE FOR EUROPE'S INDUSTRIAL SURVIVAL
As technological progress in microelectronics is far ahead of social progress, the speed of penetration of microelectronics innovations in Europe is increasingly determined by its capacity for readjustment of its institutional setting. In the light of this problem perspective the objectives of the project were as follows: - first, to describe and analyse the background for the development of microelectronics technology in terms of the general economic performance of major industrialized regions (U.S.A., Japan, Europe). - second, to determine the R&D manufacturing, manpower and technology transfer strategies of the microelectronics industry in these regions; - third, to analyse the impact of institutional mechanisms, such as industrial relations, university - industry relations, and political intervention on regional performance in microelectronics; - finally to derive, from the above analysis, recommendations aiming at the improvement of Europe's international competitiveness in the new technology.
