VIENNA, Austria ─ February 14, 2023 – Key executives from leading semiconductor companies, market analysts, economists and policymakers will gather tomorrow for insights into the latest electronics industry trends, challenges and opportunities at the annual SEMI Industry Strategy Symposium Europe (ISS Europe) 2023 in Vienna, Austria. Registration is open for the Feb. 15-16 executive conference.

LogoThemed EU Chips Act: Realizing Europe’s Ambition by 2030, ISS Europe will highlight economic, technology, market, business, and geopolitical developments influencing the global electronics manufacturing industry as well as their implications for strategic business decisions.

“It is a priority for Europe to accelerate the semiconductor ecosystem by building on existing strengths,” said Christin Eisenschmid, Managing Director, Vice President and General Manager at Intel Germany. “Intel is committed to contributing to this important goal and to help rebalancing the European supply chain.”

“With its traditional strengths in 5G communications, Industry 4.0, and automotive, Europe has tremendous opportunities ahead in semiconductor design,” said Rebecca Dobson, Corporate Vice President EMEA at Cadence. “To convert these opportunities into growth for the region, we need to collaborate across the ecosystem, develop and invest in our workforce, and inspire and support entrepreneurship.”

“Semiconductor technology is at a turning point and complex 3D design architectures enforce the creation of new inspection strategies,” said Dionys van de Ven, President of Comet Yxlon. “Time-to-market is a critical element in semiconductor, and new inspection strategies will ensure sustainable product introductions.”
