University/Government/ Industry Micro/Nanotechnology (UGIM) Symposium – June 23–26, 2024

Jun 20, 2023

This next edition of the University/Government/Industry Micro/Nanotechnology (UGIM) Symposium will be held at MIT (Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA)  on June 23–26, 2024.

The symposium brings together educators and researchers involved in micro/nanotechnology lab management around the world, and provides a forum for exchanging information and presenting new lab operations and educational concepts. Representatives of micro/nano fabrication and characterization facilities, ranging from new labs to nationally and internationally recognized facilities, have found this symposium an excellent forum for exchanging information and networking. Typical topics include industry/university interactions, new equipment trends, best practices, collaborative research, and training efforts.

The mission of the biennial UGIM Symposium is to bring together leading educators and researchers from university, government, and industry around the world to promote the various exciting fields of micro/nanotechnology. Representatives of university micro/nano fabrication facilities, ranging from new labs to nationally recognized facilities, have found this symposium an excellent forum for exchanging information and presenting new research and educational concepts. Government agencies such as NSF, NIH, NIST, SEMATECH, SRC, DoD and ONR have participated with research papers and updates on funding opportunities. Industry interactions with universities, including technology transfer, collaborative research, and training efforts are frequently presented. This is a signature opportunity for those involved in the field of micro/nanotechnology or in the operation of micro/nano cleanroom facilities.
