This podcast episode was recorded live at SEMICON Europa 2022, in Munich Germany. It features interviews with select keynote speakers representing the depth and breadth of topics discussed throughout the week. 

Luc Van den hove, President and CEO of imec, in Belgium talks about the rollercoaster ride we’ve been on in the aftermath of the pandemic, the war in Ukraine, the subsequent energy crisis, and financial crisis, and how this has propelled semiconductors into the limelight. He also explained how semiconductors enabled the ability to generate and analyze gigabytes of data using AI to quickly sequence the human genome, and how that made it possible to develop a COVID vaccine in just one year, as well as other examples of how semiconductors are helping to drive change in global challenges like the climate crisis, health, and food supplies.  

Laura Matz, CEO of Athinia, returns to the podcast to talk about the importance of developing a data ecosystem to bring materials suppliers and device manufacturers together to collaborate. Since then, she’s been exploring other areas of semiconductor manufacturing, such as supply chain and sustainability.

Michelle Williams-Vaden, of SEMI Foundation, spoke about the talk she gave during the Future of Work session on how companies can shift to welcome a more inclusive workforce. She provides some strategies on how to attract new talent and create a devoted team. 

Isabella Drolz, of Comet Yxlon, talks about how X-ray technology is the future of inspection in advanced packaging. She explains why there hasn’t been an industry-wide adoption of X-ray inspection as the preferred method.
