Driving Growth in Russia

Driving Growth in Russia


The government in Russia continues to support the information technology sector, including semiconductor, LED/SSL and photovoltaic initiatives.  Russia’s state strategy is aimed at building a strong, innovative economy. Currently, in addition to three major and seven second tier ongoing semiconductor manufacturing projects in Russia, eight investment ventures now under consideration by Rusnano for funding. These projects include semiconductors and PV (Polysilicon, solar cells and modules).  What Russia needs is a platform for technological information exchange that, over time, will enable Russia’s IC industry to progress to advanced levels of manufacturing…

That’s where SEMICON Russia (May 31-June 2) comes in — a venue for interaction between local semiconductor producers and global equipment and materials suppliers.  Featuring over 130 exhibitors and more than 1,500 expected attendees, the show is supported by the volunteer efforts of the Russian Advisory Committee, the local semiconductor industry, Russian government agencies, as well as delegates from the European Commission for Nanotechnology.

In addition to the exhibits, SEMICON Russia offers outstanding business and technical programs, including the Semiconductor Market Forum with LED session on June 1. The SOLARCON Pavilion features the PV Market Forum on May 31.  Technical seminars cover topics from semiconductor, LED, MEMS and other technologies to insights into the Russian PV market.

And don’t forget about Intersolar Europe 2011 in Munich on June 8-10.  SEMI PV Group has teamed with Intersolar to manage the PV Production and Technology Hall and the associated PV Technology Conference.  For more information on “Where PV Meets Manufacturing,” click here.

I hope to see you there!
