Presentations will explore the latest advances in LOAC, Microfluidics and Microarrays. Focus at this conference will also be given to some of the many applications of Lab-on-a-Chip, from life science research, to taking diagnostics to the point-of-care/point-of-need.

September 21 to 25, 2014
Grenoble, France

The aim of the conference is to discuss recent advances in theoretical and experimental investigations of crystal growth, characterization and control of material properties, as well as other basic research issues concerning wide bandgap semiconductors such as silicon carbide (SiC), III-nitrides, diamond and their related materials such as graphene.

SEMI MEMS Tech Seminar  
September 23, 2014
Milan Italy

Hosted by Politecnico di Milano SEMI Europe Grenoble Office invites you to attend its 3rd MEMS Tech Seminar on Sept 23rd, 2014 in Milan. This event, hosted by Politecnico di Milano, will focus on "The Future of MEMS: 2020 and Beyond". The MEMS Tech Seminar will feature experienced invited speakers from major organizations from the industry. Many networking opportunities will be proposed, including 2 Speed-Networking sessions (5 min per SEMI member company). Finally, prior the event, a Networking Dinner - not to be missed - will be proposed on Sept 22nd. This Tech Seminar is a SEMI Europe initiative to support European companies, start-ups and laboratories involved in the growing MEMS market

LpS (LED professional Symposium)   
October 1 to 2, 2014
Bregenz, Austria

It isn’t only the general lighting market that is being fundamentally changed by Solid State Lighting technologies; it’s the whole lighting industry. Predictions for the next five to seven years are that we’ll see more LED/OLED performance increases along with continuous price declines. The challenges of phasing out old technologies and ramping up new technologies are huge. Therefore, profitability is key to survival in this volatile environment.

European MicroWave Week    
October 5 to 10, 2014
Roma, Italy

The event focuses on the needs of engineers and researchers and offers an opportunity for both communities to discuss the latest trends and developments in the field of application of microwaves. Microwave devices, systems for telecommunications (both terrestrial and space-borne), transportation, medical, radar and new areas of application will be included in the programme. Particular emphasis will be placed on space-related technologies and applications.

SEMICON Europa    
October 7 to 9, 2014
Grenoble, France

Based on the intention to significantly increase the global semiconductor manufacturing share by public/private investment plans throughout Europe, SEMI has decided to rotate SEMICON Europe between the two largest semiconductor R&D and manufacturing clusters in Europe, namely Dresden and Grenoble. Consequently, SEMICON Europa 2014 will be held on October, 7-9 in Grenoble and return to Dresden in 2015. We are confident this rotation concept will provide increased business opportunities for our exhibitors and visitors. Additionally, we believe this strategy strongly supports the recently announced European Union’s EU10/100/20 initiative.
