This annual Symposium will explore how Europe can take full advantage of the potential of digital innovation.
Seeking to educate, inform and create a discussion platform on digital Innovation and exploitation for attendees from all parts of the Electronics, Components & Systems community; from large enterprise to SME’s and RTO’s to Academia.

The SEMI Industry Strategy Symposium, ISS Europe, gathers prominent industry experts from around the world to define future market demands and customer requirements to help guide your strategic business plans within the European microelectronics community.


The agenda will includes:

  • Session 1: "Market Session"

Will highlight market potential opportunities, investigate what attracts investment in the Digital Economy and how companies must adapt to competitive challenges.

  • Session 2: "Value Chain & Ecosystem"

Will look at some of the value chains that support key thematic areas of the new economy such as mobility, health, manufacturing and security. Critically, it will investigate how the ecosystems create new capability through advanced collaborative R, D&I, and how those must exploit the technology to gain maximum commercial benefit. The role of public funding in catalysing this approach will also be discussed.

  • Session 3: "Disruptive Technology Issues - Where are we going?"

The importance and risks of disruptive innovation will be addressed. New applications, systems and products are appearing on a daily basis - some of which offer radically different approaches to “conventional” supply chains. Europe must be alert to these changes and either exploit new opportunities or adapt current industrial approaches to remain competitive. A very topical subject in this area is Artificial Intelligence.

Raising the productivity and competitiveness of European businesses through technology. Boosting national economies on the international market, and strengthening the basis for sustainable prosperity and employment.
