Diving into MEMS, Sensors and Imaging Technologies for a Smart, Connected World at SEMI|MSIG European Summit

Speakers to explore autonomous vehicles, robotics, smart IoT, biomedical, consumer tech, September 20-22 in Grenoble, France

GRENOBLE, France ─ July 20, 2017 – STMicroelectronics CEO Carlo Bozotti will kick off SEMI® and MEMS & Sensors Industry Group®’s(MSIG) co-located European MEMS & Sensors Summit 2017 and European Imaging & Sensors Summit (September 20-22 in Grenoble, France) with his keynote on the next wave of sensors and actuators in smart connected devices. CEA-Leti CEO Marie Noelle Semeria will share her vision on the future of image sensing combined with other innovative sensors for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). EON Reality CEO Mats Johansson will explore pervasive and contextual AR and VR. Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS) Director Hubert Lakner will discuss the creation of a new cooperative German research fab that will strengthen the European microelectronics industry. These are just a few of the European technology leaders who will consider how MEMS, sensors, and imaging technologies are advancing the human experience with diverse applications in every imaginable technology sector.

“Our upcoming European Summit is a must-attend event for connecting directly with the leading European companies and research institutes who are driving technology and creating opportunities in MEMS, sensors, and imaging,” said Laith Altimime, president, SEMI Europe. “With global leaders such as Bosch and STMicroelectronics investing more than $1B Euros each in imaging, MEMS, and semiconductor manufacturing in Europe — and with European innovators advancing autonomous driving, augmented and virtual reality, biomedical, robotics, the Internet of Things, and more — attendees of our European Summit will gain critical insights into achieving success in the MEMS, sensors, and imaging supply chains by participating in this unique event.”
