110 participants from seven European countries gathered at Kista, Stockholm for a very giving 2-day event to discuss the latest advances in sensor technology and their applications.

Half of the attendees represented the local industry. Product developers willing to discuss innovation in sensor technologies.

The workshop joined together two very relevant networks in the regional development of imaging and sensor technology: the Technet_nano network and the Acreo lead Competence Center IMAGIC (Imaging Integrated Components) both aiming to work with industrial partners in the development and application of sensor technologies using the Clean room facilities at Electrum laboratory and within the Technet_nano network.


Already in the morning of the first day, 15 companies presented their interest in sensor technologies with ‘pitch-talks’. This opened an intensive dialog between participants at once.

The atmosphere of positive communication between attendees was present during the whole event.

A tour around the Electrum laboratory proved a popular attraction. Poster sessions and conference dinner offer also plenty of time for discussions.

Altogether, a very appreciated event!
