ISS Europe 2011: “Europe – Exploiting its Strengths”

Sun, 2011-02-27 - Tue, 2011-03-01
Grenoble, France

The past 12 months has seen a resurgence
in the global economy and especially in the semiconductor industry that
is forecasted to continue into 2011. The European micro/nano-electronics
industry has taken advantage of these conditions with companies across
the EU and beyond reporting strong business activity.

Europe has strong capabilities in many key areas of the semiconductor and related industries. Under the title “How to capitalize on European strengths along the semiconductor value chain” the
conference aims to stimulate discussion that will allow the
exploitation of these strengths to their fullest extent. To this end,
Europe needs to:

  • Leverage its strong position in advanced research
  • Commercialise R&D achievements
  • Build on its diverse manufacturing base
  • Maintain advanced manufacturing capability
  • Exploit niche and developing markets

There are many examples of such activity
across Europe and SEMI’s ISS executive symposium will once again gather
industry leaders to discuss their strategies and capabilities, stimulate
debate on how to ensure Europe exploits its many strengths and takes
full advantage of developing markets.

The conference will address these key
challenges and encourage discussion and debate. Day 1 focuses on the
market and related business implications with industry sector leaders
and forecasters providing a comprehensive view of industry developments.
This is complemented by a panel in which manufacturers representing the
diverse nature of Europe’s capabilities discuss the issues around
successful device manufacturing in Europe.

Day 2 looks at Europe’s technical
strengths and its participation in all aspects of the industry – from
450mm through More Moore to More than Moore – showing capability across
all key development areas.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
