Semicon Europa, the world’s leading microelectronics-industry trade fair, has been held every year for the past 35 years. But not once has the event taken place in Grenoble—until now. Semicon Europa 2014 will come to Grenoble’s Alpexpo expo center from October 7 to 9. And the local microelectronics community is pulling out all the stops to show the expected 6,000 visitors and 400 exhibitors how effective our local innovation ecosystem is.
This year’s program will highlight several fields in which Grenoble excels, from energy efficiency and imaging to healthcare and design. An “Innovation Village” will showcase 50 micro- and nanotech start-ups. Leti, IRT Nanoelec, and Minalogic will be at the event, as will STMicroelectronics, Soitec, and other local manufacturers. Grenoble will now host Semicon Europa every other year, alternating with Dresden, Germany.
