The Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee has launched an enquiry into the semiconductor industry in the UK.
It says this is an opportunity that does not come around often so industry’s “involvement to help to influence the future vision and strategy of the UK semiconductor and associated industries is vital”.
The backdrop for the enquiry is an ongoing global shortage of semiconductors that has caused widespread disruption to supply chains. The enquiry will examine the strengths and weaknesses of the semiconductor industry in the UK and the opportunities available.
A number of questions have been posed and the Committee is keen to hear opinions. Innovate UK’s Knowledge Transfer Network believes it is important that the views of the Enabling Technology sector are heard to help deliver a full picture of the semiconductor industry, acknowledging the full range of applications.
Information on the call can be found here and responses must be submitted by 14 June 2022.
