The two-day event–to discuss and formulate the future of semiconductors and ESDM space in India–is scheduled for Feb 07 & 08, at PDEU, Gandhinagar
India’s leading industry association in the semiconductors and ESDM (Electronics System Design and Manufacturing) sector, India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA) inaugurated the national seminar on ‘Semiconductor in India: Challenges and Opportunity’ in Gujarat today. The two-day event is aimed at discussing various aspects of semiconductor manufacturing, the creation of fabless entities, the setting up of OSAT facilities, promoting and widening electronics manufacturing in India and also creating a robust supply chain for the ESDM sector in the country. The seminar is being organized in association with the Government of Gujarat and Pandit Deendayal Energy University (PDEU), Gandhinagar.
Many prominent figures from the industry, academia and policymakers are set to come together on a single platform, and participate in the discussions that will define the roadmap for semiconductor manufacturing in India, along with exploring its scope and likely future challenges.
Key functionaries from the Government of Gujarat, EDA tool experts, semiconductor fab specialists, stalwarts from academia and the industry, experts from Gujrat State Electronics Mission, representatives from Dholera SIR, Semiconductor Laboratory (SCL), Mohali and policymakers will conduct lectures in this seminar.
Vice President of IESA, Anurag Awasthi commented: “Electronics is one of the most intensive global value chains in the world which is largely driven by the semiconductor industry nearly valued at $400 billion. The ESDM industry in India is growing at a fast pace, especially due to the strong policy support, that it is receiving from the government, along with investments by public and private stakeholders. The increasing demand for electronic products in India is further fuelling this growth. Through this national seminar, our aim is to bring thought leaders together to write the next chapter of the rise of India as a global ESDM leader through constructive dialogue around the needs of the industry, impending challenges and the solutions which can be implemented to chart a sustainable success path.”
IESA is the premier industry body in India representing the semiconductors & ESDM industry in India and aims to promote electronics & semiconductor technology solutions to positively impact the lives of 1.3 billion Indians. Through its deep connection with its member companies which comprise all global semiconductor MNCs that operate out of India, Indian electronics majors as well as MSME and Startups, IESA aims to make India the preferred global ESDM destination.
