The aim of this meeting is to bring together key players from the semiconductor and photonics industries to explore technological and manufacturing challenges and to explore how their respective industries can contribute to solving them and learn from each other. There has been much noise in recent months about the semiconductor industry, this summit, the first of its kind, will bring both communities together, along the entire manufacturing value chain from design, manufacturing, testing, packaging, equipment and materials. EPIC is renowned for its extensive networking opportunities, expect to make many new interesting contacts! The event takes place in conjunction with the exhibitions Electronica (world’s leading trade fair and conference for electronics) and SEMICON Europa (representing the semiconductor equipment and materials industry).
