Summary form only given. A strategy for research and development, as well as for product definition and marketing for electronic systems in view of the incoming nano era requires expertise and even excellence in so many diverse areas that even the largest semiconductor industry in the world, INTEL, cannot conceive it in isolation. The worldwide trend is to develop joint program between industry and academia with public and industrial funding sustained over a rather long time horizon to develop methods and technologies to master the difficult art of integrated system design. The central problem to be overcome is that traditional approaches to design and tools will not scale. Moreover, existing designers will not scale too because they do not have the required pluridisciplinary scale to deal with SoC. The strategic direction of EuroSoC is to address these issues by lining up the research community and by providing a framework where its collective knowledge can be fostered and fully leveraged by industry and society in general.
