Trade association SEMI has announced that Professor Eicke Weber, Director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE), has been elected to its International Board of Directors.
“Dr. Weber is a highly-regarded materials scientist and an avid proponent of renewable energy. In addition to his deep technical understanding of silicon technology, his perspective and expertise in solar energy will greatly contribute to our board’s ability to address SEMI members’ growing interest in the field,” said Stanley T. Myers, President and CEO of SEMI. “Photovoltaic manufacturing and other energy-related markets are key opportunities for a significant number of SEMI member companies that provide the advanced manufacturing technologies and materials to enable microelectronics, PVs, displays, MEMS and related products.”
Eicke Weber joins the global association’s 18 voting board members, four non-voting ex-officio and nine emeritus directors. He will serve an initial two-year board term and be eligible for subsequent reelection by regular ballot of the association’s global membership.
