Sustaining Competitiveness in the Face of Disruption

Ecosystem Edge for the Semiconductor Industry

The semiconductor sector constitutes one of today’s most important industries, providing the essential technology that powers the modern digital world. As the demand for semiconductor innovation and microchips increases globally, there is a need for companies across the design-manufacturing chain to work hand-in-hand to maintain the industry’s long-term strength and resilience, and to ensure a steady talent pipeline to spur industry-wide innovation. It is also important for companies to collaborate closely with various stakeholders in the ecosystem, including government agencies and academic institutions.

In this webinar, Professor Arnoud De Meyer will be sharing with us insights drawn from his book, Ecosystem Edge: Sustaining Competitiveness in the Face of Disruption, co-authored with Cambridge University Judge Business School professor, Professor Peter Williamson. Delving into the new strategies, structures, and capabilities that are required to harness the power and advantages of ecosystems for competitive success, Professor De Meyer will share how business leaders in the semiconductor industry could develop and be a part of a dynamic ecosystem of partners to collectively strengthen our capacities in these volatile and constantly shifting times.
