Materials for Future Electronics and Digitalisation

Materials for Future Electronics and Digitalisation

Thursday, 10 February 2022 13:00 - 17:00

Welcome to our Focused Technical Workshop, Materials for Future Electronics and Digitalisation, a joint event arranged by Big Science Sweden and Uppsala University.

Electronic components and systems are needed in the development of solutions to the biggest challenges that the world is facing, such as energy production and consumption, increasing demands for computer speed and capacity, and advanced medical applications for an aging population.

Future advances in electronic components and systems are closely linked to the development of materials that will help meet requirements regarding functionality, energy consumption and circularity.

Representatives from selected high-tech companies and academic research teams are invited to discuss trends in the field of electronics and the associated challenges regarding materials.

The seminar is online.
