ISS Europe 2018: Strategies and innovations to compete globally

Electronics manufacturing executives will attend Europe’s SEMI Industry Strategy Symposium (ISS Europe) in Dublin, Ireland on 4-6 March 2018.  Hosted by SEMI Europe, the ISS Europe 2018 is the three-day flagship business event dedicated to innovation in the microelectronics sector that brings together leading analysts, researchers, economists, and technologists from the microelectronics and semiconductor industries for critical insights on the forces shaping the electronics manufacturing supply chain. 

While having core strengths of its own, Europe is part of a global innovation and supply chain and European organisations need to find new ways to maximise competitive advantage. “Organisations operating in Europe need to find the most effective way to innovate, manufacture and profit by finding their place in the global supply chain. During the symposium, best class discussions will address Europe’s strategic, economic and social needs,“ said Laith Altimime, president, SEMI Europe.

A wide range of top European companies, research institutes and public institutions will debate the best ways to compete globally, along with discussions on successful manufacturing in Europe and mechanisms to support innovation:
