The semiconductor industry is going through a period of intensive change: consolidation, the dawn of the Internet of Things, costs per transistor no longer shrinking, EUV technology posing some challenges, 450mm  temporarily put on ‘stand-by’, an increased focus on More than Moore and heterogeneous devices.
Europe has strong assets: world-class research, great technology, leading equipment makers, a vibrant supply chain, a supportive policy environment. What strategy should Europe adopt to take advantage of this changing environment?

Our panel of speakers from across the supply chain will discuss the market strategies that they think will offer Europe a competitive edge on the global market.

The SEMI Executive Summit is also an occasion for the industry to take stock of its progress and celebrate achievements. The European SEMI Award, recognizing a team or individual who have made a significant contribution to the semiconductor equipment and/or materials industry, and the SEMI Europe Standards Awards, recognizing standard volunteers for their extraordinary contribution to the industry through the development of standards, will be awarded during the Executive Summit.

The event will be followed by a networking reception.
