9th Wide Band Gap Semiconductor and Components Workshop

The European Space Agency (ESA), CNES, EDA and the DGA are jointly organising the 9th Wide Bandgap Semiconductor and Components workshop to promote and facilitate information exchange on wide bandgap technologies for microwave, power switching, sensor and other emerging space/defence applications. This will be a 2 day event, to be held at ESA’s establishment ECSAT, Harwell, UK, on the 8th and 9th of October 2018. An exciting agenda is planned with contributions expected from academia, industry, and government research establishments. Attendance at this event will provide an excellent overview of the current status of wide bandgap semiconductor and component technology within Europe. 


The objectives of this workshop are to:
  • Provide an overview of the current status of wide bandgap semiconductor and component technology within Europe.
  • Facilitate information exchange between aerospace, defence, Space Agency and EU funded research programmes in order to enhance visibility on latest developments, allowing for a proper coordination that ensures a rapid transition of the technology into manufacturing industry.
  • Provide industry and research establishments information regarding funding possibilities through European governmental institutions.
