EIPC Technical Snapshot Webinar on Supply Chains

Reading time ( words)

The frailty of global supply chains has been clearly indicated of late. A gust of wind in Egypt, a zephyr of misfortune in China, a mistral of miscalculation at foundries in 2019, and suddenly the things you need now—are not there.

In the light of the current supply chain issues and material price pressures facing Europe, the EIPC (European Institute for the PCB Community) will be holding a webinar dedicated to the supply chain.

To be held on April 14, the webinar will feature presentations from Alun Morgan of Ventec; Francois Bottazzi of Circuit Foil; Andreas Folge of Nan Ya; and Dr. Bart Kuipers of Erasmus Centre for Urban, Port and Transport Economics.

The webinar will be followed by a Q&A session.
