Who is behind this unique event?

Prof. Dr. Lars Montelius – the Director General at INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory. Known as a true nanotechnology defender and enthusiast, Lars Montelius is the founder of several Swedish nanotechnology companies and he is also the current president for IUVSTA and EC Executive High Level Group (HLG) at DG NMPB. Active member of two European platforms known as NANOfutures and EuMat, Lars Montelius has an active position at MNE2017 as the Conference Co-chair.

Prof. Francesc Perez-Murano – vice-director of IMB-CNM. Passionate about the manufacturing process in nanotechnology, he dedicated is research in developing novel methods of nanofabrication for micro- and nano- electronics, and to applications of MEMS and NEMS in the areas of Telecommunications and Sensing. Being a part of multiple EU collaborative research projects, coordinator of STREP project in FP6 (Novopoly) and of more than 10 national Spanish projects, he is co-author of more than 150 articles in peer reviewed International Journals and co-inventor of four patents. Prof. Francesc Perez-Murano has a participation as conference Co-Chair at MNE2017.

João Gaspar – Head of the Micro and Nanofabrication Department at INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory. His research activities include the development of microfabrication processes and advanced silicon micromachining, high-throughput wafer-scale testing and reliability of MEMS materials and devices, resonance and optical applications, electret-based 2-D resonant microenergy scavengers, and microneedles and capillary arrays for intracellular recording applications and related post-CMOS processing. Author of 80 scientific papers and more than 100 proceedings, his work was presented at about 130 conferences. João Gaspar has a dynamic role as Program Co-Chair at MNE2017.

Dr.Andreu Llobera, Research Associate Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona CNM. Known as an exceptional researcher, Dr.Andreu Llobera participated in countless research projects, financed by the Spanish Government and the European Community. He authored more than 130 published articles, holds eleven patents and contributed with more than 120 international conferences. His research field is dedicated to ophthalmic materials, processes and technologies, integrated optics devices and photonic lab-on-a-chip platforms, either using silicon and polymer technology. Dr. Llobera was awarded a Starting Grant in 2008 and a Proof-of-concept in 2015, both from the European Research Council and, at this remarkable conference, he is the Program Co-Chair.

Joan Bausells, Research Professor at the Barcelona Microelectronics Institute (IMB-CNM, CSIC). Having the reputation of an avid researcher in the field of MEMS/NEMS and nanoelectric devices, Joan Bausells published more than 100 papers in several international journals and has contributed with more than 240 conference papers. Being a member of the International Steering Committee of the Transducers conferences, he was Program Chair of the 32nd MNE Conference held in Barcelona in 2006 and, this year at the 43th edition of MNE2017, he is the Technical Co-Chair.

Dr. Gemma Rius, Postdoctoral Researcher (IMB-CNM, CSIC). Committed to her work and graduate in Physics by the UAB, Gemma Rius has her own research line on advanced nanostructures and nanodevices by combining nanopatterning and nanomaterials. Her present work includes the GraMOE project (Nanopatterned graphene for magnetic, optical and electronic devices) and the SPS-NATO project – RAWINTS (rapid skin wound healing by integrated tissue engineering and sensing).
Rius wrote more than 60 publications including several reviewed articles, book chapters and recently became technical advisor for GrapheneNanotech (GPNT). She is also involved in the European Graphene Flagship Initiative in collaboration with Biomedical Applications Group of the IMB. She has been research supervisor for undergraduate and graduate students of UAB, reviewer for several journals and research projects for the EU commission, US NSF and regional institutions. At MNE2017, Dr. Gemma Rius is leading the short courses coordination.

WELCOME

In September 2017, the 43rd edition of MNE2017 will be held at INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory, in Braga – Portugal. This is a great opportunity to reinforce links within this international community and to be enjoy Portugal, the hospitality, the culture, the people and the Atlantic coast climate and of course the excellent food & wine.

MNE2017  is the major annual conference devoted to micro and nano-engineering and manufacturing, held in a an European country every September. The Conference brings together engineers and scientists from across the world to discuss recent progress and future trends in research, fabrication, and applications of micro and nano devices. MNE usually attracts about 800 -1000 participants (>600 papers) and is the premier European conference in micro and nanotechnology on the following subjects:

  • Micro and Nanolithography;
  • Micro and Nanofabrication/Engineering;
  • Micro and Nano devices and their applications in engineering science (MEMS, NEMS, MicroOptics, Photovoltaic,…);
  • Micro and Nano devices and their applications in Life Science (µTAS, BioMEMS, Microfluidic Devices,…).

The program and layout have been structured to maximize the opportunity for participants to visit the technical exhibition during the coffee breaks and poster sessions. Here’s a list of some of the plenary speakers at MNE2017 :

  • Federico Capasso, Harvard: “Metasurfaces – New Frontiers in Structured light and Surface Waves
  • Frank Schuurmans, ASML, Vice President Research: “The story of ASML – from spin off to a leading semiconductor lithography company”
  • Mark Hutchinson, ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP; Adelaide):  Nanoscale Biophotonics
  • Naomi Halas, RICE: Plasmonics
  • Göran Stemme (10 years), KTH. MEMS technology for medical applications
  • Olivier Joubert (20 years), CEA-LETI: New trends in plasma etching for ultra large scale integration technology.

This year we look forward to welcoming you to Braga and to INL!
