RISC-V Summit return to Europe in 2024. It will take place in Munich on June 24-28, 2024.

What is RISC-V?

RISC-V is a standard for an instruction set architecture (ISA) designed for simplicity, flexibility, and scalability in computer processors. Unlike proprietary architectures, RISC-V offers a free and open standard, allowing anyone to design, manufacture, and sell RISC-V chips without the need for expensive licensing.

Its modular design allows for innovative extensions, making it suitable for a wide range of applications from embedded systems to high-performance computing. RISC-V's open nature fosters innovation and collaboration, driving its adoption in various industries and academia.

Why is RISC-V important for Europe?

RISC-V holds significance for Europe due to its potential to foster innovation, enhance technological sovereignty, and stimulate economic growth within the region. By embracing RISC-V, European countries can reduce their dependency on foreign technologies and proprietary architectures, thereby enhancing their autonomy in critical sectors such as telecommunications, cybersecurity, and data processing.

Additionally, the open nature of RISC-V encourages collaboration and knowledge sharing, which can strengthen Europe's position in the global semiconductor industry and facilitate the development of tailored solutions for European needs. Furthermore, RISC-V aligns with Europe's push for open standards and digital sovereignty, making it an attractive option for research, development, and deployment across a wide range of applications, from IoT devices to supercomputers.

Overall, RISC-V presents an opportunity for Europe to assert its technological independence, drive innovation, and stimulate economic competitiveness in the digital age.
