MCCI Annual Forum 2018

We are hosting our annual forum on Thursday, 11th October in Tyndall National Institute. The centre is  on a scaling trajectory having grown our funding from a base from a core grant of €1 million,  we grew our research funding a further €6.5 million through our industry members and our funding partners.

To mark our success the theme for this year’s event is Realising Big Ambitions where we will present how our research is pivotal to current global technology trends as microelectronics is a key enabling technology that powers the major ICT trends globally.

We will bring together leading experts from industry as well as our senior research leaders to examine a range of topics on how we enable the microelectronics industry to deliver research and innovation with ease. It is essential for Ireland’s competitiveness that we continue to drive research and innovation in the area of microelectronics and semiconductors.

We are delighted that our forum will bring together keynote speakers from industry to discuss how we will continue to enable companies to realise their growth ambitions through our research excellence.
