Registration Information

NextFlex members can attend the full three days for a discounted price of $199. If you are also a SEMI member, you do not need to use a code; the SEMI system will recognize you as a member if you log in with your SEMI credentials.

Workshop Description

This day and a half workshop will convene NextFlex members, industry experts, academic and government leaders, and others from the FHE manufacturing community to explore opportunities for flexible hybrid electronics manufacturing technologies in new and emerging areas of advanced semiconductor packaging. As the community awaits the release of request for proposals (RFPs) for programs within the CHIPS and Science Act, NextFlex seeks to align the ecosystem’s vision on how additive and flexible hybrid electronics manufacturing can shape the future of domestic packaging capabilities. Join us for presentations from visionary speakers on how their organizations plan to participate in the CHIPS and Science Act programs and participate in breakout sessions focused on information sharing, proposal concept refinement, and formation of proposal teams.
