MEMS & NANO Live Seminar Programme

In association with JEMI, Nanotechnology KTN and MANCEF this FREE to ATTEND two day conference programme will explore a full range of technical seminars and workshops under the main theme of Advances in MEMS and NANO Processes for Electronics, Industrial and Biomedical applications.
Nano technology and MEMS often work together and bridge many other areas of technology as a key enabler. In both areas the UK has global leadership, and significant employment and wealth has been created as a result. The UK industry is represented by strong trade bodies who are actively networking to build supply chains and collaborative relationships to secure high growth. The MEMS and NANO Live Seminar programme has been created to support these goals.
