KETs for jobs


The European Commission has today called for a European effort to boost Key Enabling Technologies (KETs). The global market in KETs, which comprises micro- and nanoelectronics, advanced materials, industrial biotechnology, photonics, nanotechnology and advanced manufacturing systems, is forecast to grow from € 646 Billion to over € 1 Trio by 2015.

 The deployment of KETs is highly relevant for both industrial competitiveness and for responding to today’s great societal challenges. The transversal and multifaceted role of KETs is mirrored by the number of SMEs active in the field and the number of high quality jobs being created. For example, in the photonics sector, the bulk of the 5,000 European companies are SMEs.
