IPC Issues Position Paper on Priorities for an Ambitious EU Industrial Policy Strategy


Reading time ( words)

IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries has issued a position paper, “IPC Priorities for an Ambitious EU Industrial Policy Strategy” in support of EU Industry Day.

Last September, the European Commission published a Communication on a renewed EU industrial policy strategy that emphasizes crucial aspects for the electronics industry, such as the need for substantial investment in advanced manufacturing, skilled and talented workforce as well as research and innovation.

EU Industry Day is designed to update stakeholders on the Commission's strategic approach to industrial policy and actions to further develop industrial competitiveness in Europe. During this forum, stakeholders contributing to European industrial competitiveness can showcase their activities, learn from each other, discuss cross-cutting issues and develop joint visions for the future.

“IPC welcomes the EU Industrial Policy and related efforts to address these issues that are critical for our members,” said IPC President and CEO John Mitchell. “With more than 650 members in Europe, the majority of which are small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), IPC has long advocated for an ambitious industrial agenda for Europe.

“I also encourage our member companies to participate in IMPACT Brussels 2018 this fall, when we will meet with EU officials to address the EU Industrial Policy and other issues, such as environmental regulations. A save-the-date for IMPACT Brussels 2018 will be sent to our members soon.”

If you’re like me, you’ve probably heard of 5G, but you may not understand what all the fuss is about. First, 5G simply means fifth-generation mobile networks. The best way to understand what 5G is about is to understand all the other Gs, like 3G and 4G (we rarely hear about the early Gs!).

PCB Material Toolbox for Today's 3G & 4G Networks and Future High-Speed Needs in 5G

The material toolbox idea first came up when I saw the IPC appendix list for standard 1-ply stack-ups. The idea is to make a very simple bill of materials, specifications and notes, and possibly use the same prepreg/resin in the laminate and in the core.

ICT technical director Bill Wilkie is well-known for choosing notable venues for Institute of Circuit Technology events, and his choice for this year’s Annual Symposium was the National Motor Museum, located in the village of Beaulieu in the heart of the New Forest, a national park in the county of Hampshire in Southern England. The region is known for its heathland, forest trails and native ponies.
