EDA Webinar: Presentation of the EDA Industry Report 2020






Given the current situation, created by the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), from EDA we are implementing a series of initiatives to continue with the dissemination of the activities and services developed by EDA members.

In this case, the initiative consists of launching a series of educational webinars on technical topics.

Webinars are short and educational sessions (about one hour) hosted online and broadcast live.

Using a specific platform, webinar participants can watch the presentation and follow the speaker’s explanations, as well as interact through a chat and ask their own questions.
