Commissioned by IWT (Agency for Innovation by Science and Technology), DSP Valley has recently developed the strategic roadmap ‘Nano-electronics for Flanders'. This way Europe wants to support the Flemish region and its developments. An economic analysis shows that the micro/nano-electronics (MNE) sector flourishes in Flanders. In 2012 the MNE companies in Flanders employed more than 22,000 employees. In relation to other sectors, the MNE sector has grown significantly stronger the last decennium. The roadmap maps opportunities for the sector, in terms of societal challenges in health and wellness, home / buildings, mobility, communications and energy. Besides opportunities for the industry, the roadmap also  discusses significant challenges.
