On 7 July 2015, the Silicon Saxony Community got together for the 10th Silicon Saxony Day in Dresden. Within the project Silicon Europe and in collaboration with the SOI Consortium, an SOI (Silicon-on-Insulator) workshop was held during the afternoon. This 3-hour workshop has been a great opportunity to get a comprehensive overview of the SOI technologies and applications listening to high profile speakers from leading companies such as Globalfoundries , NXP or Infineon, Universities such as UCL (Université Catholique de Louvain), and market analyst Yole.
