40 PCB007 MAGAZINE I JANUARY 2022 e EIPC is a network of professionals in the electronics industry providing a platform to exchange business and technology informa- tion for the success of the European electronics industry. EIPC has supported over 100 mem- ber companies since 1968, including suppliers of machinery, materials, and soware tools to the PCB industry, along with PCB manufac- turers and OEMs. Business owners, senior management, and key technical staff find that the EIPC provides an efficient platform for following and pursu- ing new developments in the industry. Tarja Rapala-Virtanen, EIPC technical direc- tor, says, "EIPC has traditionally held two tech- nical conferences a year but, as we're all too well aware, it has not been possible to organize these face-to-face events during the last two years, so we have opted to host an online Tech- nical Snapshot once a month." e Technical Snapshot is a series of webi- nars where EIPC member and non-member companies; PCB material, process and equip- ment companies; research institutes; and uni- versities can share their ongoing research with the audience joining the webinar. Webinars focus on current topics that play a large part in the day-to-day business of our industry and are of interest not only to the members but to the entire supply chain. Creating this platform enables everyone to share new technologies and market informa- tion, as well as provide the opportunity to talk to PCB industry experts. e webinar includes three snapshot-style presentations, approximately 15 minutes each, with a roundtable Q&A at the end. "e key idea is to provide a short and productive view of the industry's most current and interesting topics," Rapala-Virtanen says. e articles on these next several pages high- light just a few of the technical topics presented at the webinars in 2021, and insight into what's happening in the European marketplace. I-Connect007 technical editor Pete Starkey regularly reviews the Technical Snapshot Webi- nars. Click here to read the most recent review. e next webinar is scheduled for Jan. 19.
