Materials for future electronics and digitalization

Electronic components and systems are needed for the development of solutions that allow to meet the biggest challenges that the world is facing such as energy production and consumption, computers’ rising demands on speed and capacity, advanced medical applications for an aging population, etc. The development of future electronic components and systems is closely linked to the development of materials that makes possible to achieve these requirements of functionality, energy consumption and circularity.

On 10th February, of Big Science Sweden, and ÅMA Ångström Materials Academy, will be holding a seminar on Materials for future electronics and digitalization. Representatives from selected high-tech companies and academic research teams are invited to describe development trends in the fields of electronics and the material challenges that they imply.

Welcome to attend the event and participate in the interactive presentations with comments, questions to speakers and chat discussions!
