IMAPS Nordic hopes that all members, affiliated members, their loved ones and friends are safe in these troubling times. IMAPS Nordic is currently working on organising the next EMPC conference next year in Gothenburg, Sweden. We hope that by that time it will be safe to hold a conference where industry and academic colleagues and friends can once again enjoy each other’s company and nurture existing networks and create new ones. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown us the need for reliable electronics to assure electronics communication when physical presence is not possible. A large responsibility lies, therefore, on the packaging community to ensure that electronics are packaged in a safe, reliable and cost efficient manner to allow more of the world’s population to take advantage of all forms of electronic communications. We hope to see many of you in Gothenburg in September 2021.
