Study looks into EU's policies for strengthening technological sovereignty in KETs
The European Parliament's Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA) has published a study on key enabling technologies for Europe's technological sovereignty. The study analyses how the EU is performing in developing and protecting ownership and know-how in critical technologies, especially in comparison with strong global players such as China and the USA. Key enabling technologies (KETs) – advanced manufacturing and materials, life-science technologies, micro/nano-electronics and photonics, artificial intelligence, and security and connectivity technologies – are crucial for European society, as well as being important for the EU's competitiveness and position in the global economy. Based on the challenges identified in the analysis, it discusses policy options for strengthening the EU's technological sovereignty in KETs.
