Hosted by SEMI Europe, the three-day flagship business event this year focuses on strategies for competing globally, trends in electronics innovation and new opportunities and challenges of the digital economy.
“With Europe a critical player in the global innovation and supply chain, European organizations need to leverage the region’s rich history of innovation through public-private partnerships to uncover new ways to maximise competitive advantage in the digital economy,” said Laith Altimime, president of SEMI Europe. “ISS Europe is an ideal forum for identifying these opportunities.”
Top European companies, research institutes and public institutions will explore how Europe can seize the full potential of digital innovation through collaborations in the electronics, components and systems community – from enterprises of all sizes to researchers and academia.
