The General Secretariat for Investment (SGPI) has just published on its website theex-post evaluation study of the ambitious NANO 2017 R&D program (and its synthesis 😉) carried out by the GAC team from Sophia Antipolis.
NANO 2017 is the 4th successive R&D support program in the semiconductor sector. With 775 M €, it associates around STMicroelectronics and CEA-LETI, a set of industrial and academic partners in the Grenoble innovation ecosystem.
The objective of the evaluation was to provide elements of analysis for public decision-makers on the effectiveness of the program in terms of innovation, economic benefits, support for the innovation ecosystem around STMicroelectronics and CEA-LETI and many SMEs and mid-cap companies in particular Soitec, Kalray, Intel Docea, Siemens Mentor Graphics, etc., the Minalogic competitiveness cluster, IRT Nanoélec, etc. and on the “return on public investment” of the program.
The 3 key results to remember:
- € 1,925 million is the amount of R&D carried out by manufacturers and academics thanks to NANO 2017. It had a major effect on the R&D strategy of manufacturers and on their repositioning in sectors of the future such as IoT and the automobile!
- Between € 700 million and € 1.8 billion, this is the turnover generated in 2018 by manufacturers thanks to NANO 2017!
- Between 2,700 and 4,500, this is the number of jobs that have been created or supported thanks to NANO 2017!
The GAC team composed of Benoit Masquin, Camille Begon and Marc Pattinson received congratulations from the steering committee: the General Secretariat for Investment (SGPI), the Directorate-General for Enterprises (DGE), the Fund deposits and Consignment (CDC) and several local authorities!
