MicroTech 2022 – Next Generation of Electronics and People

MicroTech 2022 will be a Face to Face Event to be held on Tuesday 26th April 2022 to be held at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Harwell Campus, Didcot, Oxon, OX11 0QX.

Please note the last chance to book is Thursday 21st April 2022

MicroTech 2022 is the Annual IMAPS-UK Conference which will focus on key emerging markets and their associated technological and skill challenges associated with the Next Generation of Electronics and People. This Face to Face Conference combines invited Keynotes and presentations from leading companies and academic institutions. The Conference will also include the IMAPS-UK Annual General Meeting (AGM).

MicroTech 2022 will address the twin pillars of developing next generation electronics systems and people with appropriate skills to design and manufacture them. Next generation electronics systems will not only be expected to demonstrate enhanced performance, but also improved efficiency, reduced thermal impact, use of sustainable materials and end-of-life recyclability. The people aspect will be explored through proposing ways of raising awareness of the need for electronics packaging personnel with multi-disciplinary skills and encouraging engagement within the education system.

The conference will focus on the following themes:

  • Markets Trends and Developments for Carbon Reduction
  • Materials and Processes
  • Research and Development
  • Skills and Training
