Workshop organized by European Nanoelectronics COnsortium for Sustainability (ENCOS)

A sustainable use of rare raw materials is an economic and major geopolitical stake for the 21st century. Some key elements considered today in the emerging devices for the Internet of Things (IoT) must be substituted or saved (by orders of decades) in a drastic sustainable way in the near future.

Since tens of Billions electronics objects are being disseminated all over the word in homes, buildings, cars, medical devices, roads, etc., it is obviously a major concern to revisit the economic, technological, and societal models to develop a sustainable electronic industry that will care about its impact right from the design and manufacturing of these objects.

The ENCOS network on sustainable nanoelectronics brings together leaders from industry and university to exchange about new paradigms in electronics design and research toward sustainability.
It develops methodologies applied to advanced research integrating the economic analysis, geopolitical issues, acceptability and the durability of new technological solutions.
