Globe Event

Topic special on semiconductors in a geopolitical perspective

On April 29, Holland Semiconductors presents the online event ‘Holland Semiconductors Topic Special | Semiconductors in a geopolitical perspective’. We invite you to participate in this interactive round table discussion.

Significant changes in semiconductor industry

These are turbulent, yet exciting, times for the semiconductor industry. Geopolitical developments such as listed below have a large impact:

  • Shortages of chips stopping production lines
  • US/CN trade war impact
  • Ongoing consolidation of semiconductor companies
  • Huge investment plans in new fabs.

The semiconductor industry is shaken up worldwide. With a strongly increasing political focus on semiconductors, 2021 will likely be the year of significant changes in our industry.

Closing the gap 

What do these changes in the semiconductor industry mean for members of High Tech NL or Holland Semiconductors? How can your company be helped? Do you experience unfair global competition or a negative impact from global dynamics? Do you miss certain elements in our Dutch ecosystem?

Make yourself heard by participating in this round table discussion. This way, we can find ‘one voice’ and try to close the gap between large European initiatives and what the companies actually need.

During the online live broadcast, three table guests will present their views on the semiconductor industry in a global perspective. Subsequently, the participants are given the opportunity to discuss this topic with the table guests and each other. The live session will be hosted and moderated by Willem Endhoven, managing director of High Tech NL.

Guests at the table

  • Tim Tiek, CEO and Executive Director, Dieco Electronics | Boardmember High Tech NL
  • Patrick Pype, Director European Affairs, NXP Semiconductors
  • Maud van Haren, Senior Policy Advisor at Ministry Economic Affairs and Climate

Registration details

The event will take place on Thursday, April 29, 2021 from 16.00-17.00h. These are exciting times for the Semiconductor industry! Let’s take this window of opportunity together.
