Our technical visit program is designed to give member companies an insight into the Semiconductor industry in all its aspects throughout the UK and Ireland. These meetings generally consist of presentations by the host organisation, a tour of their facilities and presentations from JEMI members and other industry experts. Over the years JEMI has collaborated with a number of organisations, including NMI and SSSF to offer its members the best possible networking opportunities. These visits are usually coupled with an additional networking event which takes the form of a golfing or bowling competitions to networking dinners or invitation only fab visits.
These networking events have received great feedback from hosts, finding the face-to-face contact highly successful. We hope to see a continuing growth in the number of attendees to these visits in order to maximise the networking opportunities.

Presentations included the latest developments in packaging technology and next generation lasers with test facilities for JEMI members. This was the second collaboration meeting between JEMI & SSSF and according to delegates, was thoroughly productive and enjoyed by all.
National Semiconductor, Greenock
20th November 2007
This was the first collaboration event between SSSF & JEMI. The day was a huge success with more than 55 exhibitors on the day.
The event was started with a thought provoking presentation from Gerry Edwards continuing to provide an excellent opportunity for exhibitors to network with the National Semi engineers.
