About this programme

About the programme

The aim of the European Chips Act, is to bolster Europe’s competitiveness and resilience in semiconductor technologies and applications to support the green and digital transition. The Chips for Europe Initiative, part of the EU Chips Act, aims to reinforce the European semiconductor ecosystem and Europe’s technological leadership and will be implemented by the Chips Joint Undertaking (Chips JU).

The Chips JU, with funding from both Digital Europe and Horizon Europe, will

  • Set up pre-commercial, innovative pilot lines, providing industry state-of-the-art facilities to test, experiment and validate semiconductor technologies and system design concepts;
  • Deploy a cloud-based Design Platform for design companies across the EU;
  • Support the development of advanced technology and engineering capacities for quantum chips;
  • Establish a network of competence centres and promote skills development.

The Chips JU is a public-private partnership that supports research, development, and manufacturing capacities in the European semiconductor ecosystem.

RUSTICA - Converting organic residues into bio-based fertiliser products

The RUSTICA project obtained funding under Horizon 2020, more in particular under the topic ‘Closing nutrient cycles’.  RUSTICA focuses on demonstration and implementation of circular bio-based nutrient valorisation chains, focusing on waste from the fruit and vegetable agro-food system. The project kicked off in 2021 and will run until 2024. It will use a strong multi-actor approach to co-create both socio-economic and technological knowledge in four case study regions in Europe and one in Colombia. The Flanders-based company DRANCO is one of the project partners and acts as technical project manager for the entire project. DRANCO participates in the project to develop its own technologies, to network and to help make the transition to a more circular based economy.
