Major global semiconductor industry trade fair SEMICON Europa was held in Grenoble for the first time ever this year. Turnout far exceeded expectations, with the number of exhibitors up 18% over 2013, and the number of visitors up 28%. The event kicked off on October 7 in the presence of the French government’s Secretary of Research Geneviève Fioraso and local political and civic leaders. The fair offered up two innovations this year, the Cluster area and the Innovation Village. A total of 30 European start-ups (including Grenoble’s own Aryballe Technologies, IRLynx, Exagan, and others) were selected by an international panel of investment experts to participate in the Innovation Village.
From now on, the fair will alternate between Dresden and Grenoble every other year—so mark your calendars for Grenoble in 2016.
