Semicon Europa

Join imec at Semicon Europa 2018, we will be present with a booth on topics such as Semiconductor technology, Flexible electronics, GaN, Advanced packaging and more. Our CEO Luc Van den hove will be the opening speaker for the keynote session.

SEMICON Europa attracts a highly influential audience from every segment and sector of the European microelectronics industries including: semiconductors, LEDs, MEMS, printed/organic/flexible, and other adjacent markets. Exhibitor and attendees meet to enact change and address industry-shaping trends.

This year SEMICON Europa will be co-located with electronica 2018 in Munich, Germany creating the strongest single event for electronics manufacturing in Europe, and broadening the range of attendees across the electronics chain. The co-location with electronica 2018 embodies the SEMI global strategy to connect the breadth of the entire electronics supply chain.


13-16 November 2018
Messe M√ľnchen, Munich, Germany

On SEMICON Europe, NanoStreeM will host an Industrial Stakeholder event on "Novel materials and nano-risk in semiconductor industry".

Advanced materials, such as engineered nanomaterials and carbon-based materials, are expected to become a pillar of the European industrial development. The market acceptance of such materials depends on the sufficient understanding of their health and safety properties both in terms of occupational hazards and the impact on the ecosystem. Such challenges must be systematically addressed on every level along the research and development chain to ensure our long term technological sustainability. 

The workshop will inform how and where nanomaterials are used in typical semiconductor fabs, based on the findings of the NanoStreeM project. These findings will be discussed in view of the emerging regulations for engineered nanomaterials use in Europe. In particular, an overview will be given to the new aspects of REACH annexes for nanomaterials. The workshop will further outline suitable risk assessment frameworks, which are applicable to engineered nanomaterials used in semiconductor industry and novel materials in general. The meeting will conclude with a panel discussion on the steps necessary to further enable use of nanomaterials throughout the industry and appropriately govern the emergent risks. More information is available on the event web-page:

When: November 14, 12-17 h 
Where: Conference Room A51


  • Dimiter Prodanov (Imec): Overview of the NanoStreeM project:  30 min
  • Current engineered nanomaterial use in semiconductor fabs: (TBD): 30 min
  • Claire Skentelbery (NIA) : Nano REACH and advanced materials:  30 min
  • Michael Jank (Fraunhofer IIS) : Future material and emerging hazards: 30 min

Panel discussion (45 min - 1h) with  Claire Skentelbery, Shane Harte, Daniel Hristozov and Michael Jank.

  1. How do future materials fit into the risk assessment framework? What competences do we need to evaluate emerging risks?
  2. How can the risk be communicated along the supply chain?
