EMINT Spring Meeting 2015


After the succesful foundation of the new association Electronics, Micro and Nano Technologies (EMINT) the first EMINT spring meeting now provides an opportunity to further develop and intensify the extended network, which also includes organic and printed electronics, battery production and photovoltaic equipment. We are happy that the Kurtz-ERSA Group in Wertheim hosts the event, taking place on March 13, 2015, 09h00 - 15h30. Topics will be system integration and collaborating robots in micro and electronics production, TTIP and NAFTA business as well as corporate foresight. On the evening before there will be a get-together at the very picturesque '"Hammermühle", the original place where the company has been founded 235 years ago.

The spring meeting: Technology, market and future
Besides networking the spring meeting will serve as a platform for an intensive exchange of information and opinions regarding important topics in the areas of market, technology and future. We will look at new technologies, inform about the challenges in an international environment and discuss strategies as to how to cope with future developments early enough.
