The SCS Cluster, located in Gardanne, France, focuses on Secure Communicating Solutions covering the entire ICT value chain, from silicon to end uses. The participants of the event will get the opportunity to learn more about know-how of SCS Clusters's members in the field of micro-electronics and the quality of the infrastructure and support to innovation in the PACA region.

The SECF will give international visibility to the SCS Cluster's ecosystem which goes perfectly with the Micro 2020 regional strategy aiming at maintaining and creating jobs in the sector of microelectronics in PACA by developing innovation and international partnerships.
