To promote micro- and nano-engineering in Europe, the MNE Steering Committee recognizes a researcher or engineer every year who has made outstanding contributions to fields addressed by the MNE conference. The aim is to honor a researcher or engineer who has inspired the MNE community by his/her leadership or outstanding work. This could, for example, be through leadership in the successful development and commercialization of a technology, the pioneering of a method or development of a tool with significant impact on current research or manufacturing methods, or an outstanding invention.

This year, the MNE Fellow award will go to Prof. Jürgen Brugger, from EPFL.

The award ceremony will take place during a Plenary Session of the MNE Conference.

In previous years the MNE Fellow Award was bestowed to:

Dr. Haroon Ahmed from University of Cambridge (founder of Microengineering conference, later the Micro & Nanoengineering conference) at MNE 2003, Cambridge
Dr. Peter Vettiger from IBM Research – Zurich at MNE 2005, Vienna
Dr. Mike Hatzakis from NCSR Demokritos Athens at MNE 2006, Barcelona
Dr. Bruno Murari from ST Microelectronics at MNE 2010, Genoa
Dr. Luc Van den Hove from IMEC at MNE 2011, Berlin
Dr. Hans Löschner from IMS Nanofabrication AG in Austria at MNE 2012, Toulouse
Prof. Dr. Dieter Kern from the University of Tübingen at MNE 2014, Lausanne
Dr. Emile van der Drift from Technical University of Delft at MNE 2015, The Hague
Prof. Dr. Nico de Rooij, professor emeritus at the EPFL Lausanne and Vice-President at CSEM SA
Prof. Andreas Manz from Saarland University of Saarbrücken at MNE 2017, Braga
Dr. John Randall from Zyvex Labs, USA at MNE 2018, Copenhagen
Prof. Hella-Christin Scheer, University of Wuppertal, Germany at MNE 2019, Rhodes

Prof. Anja Boisen, Technical University of Denmark, Denmark, at MNE2021, Torino

 

MNE2022 Best Poster Award
sponsored byraithweb


The MNE conference gives much relevance to the poster session. Contributions selected for poster presentation do not have less scientific quality than contributions selected for oral presentation, but their contents are expected to be more suitable for communication in poster form. To highlight the importance of the poster session, awards are given to the best posters. The poster contest rules can be found here.

 

The posters will be evaluated per topic and four Best Poster Awards will be given out, one for each topic:
• Advanced Patterning (Lithography & Etching)
• Nanofabrication/Manufacturing for Functional Structures/Surfaces
• Micro-Nano Devices and Systems (MEMS/NEMS) for physical applications, electronics, photonics and energy
• Micro & Nano Devices and Systems for Life Sciences, Chemistry, and Agrofood

The evaluation will be based on the assessment of the abstract reviewers and by the poster examination from the jury during the conference.
Winner announcement: The Best Poster Award Winners will be announced and handled during the conference dinner on September 21st.

 

MNE2022 Best Student Oral Presentation Award

To be announced later


Oral communication of scientific results is a key aspect of the role of a scientist or engineer. Besides the technical quality of the achieved results, the slides need to be well organized and supported by a clear speech, leading to an overall appealing and inspiring presentation. Oral contributions by students, selected on the basis of their abstract ranking, will be evaluated by a panel of MNE experts with relevant experience. The award rules can be found here.

 

The presentations will be evaluated per topic and four Best Student Oral Presentation Awards will be given out, one for each topic:
• Advanced Patterning (Excluding Etching)
• Nanofabrication/Manufacturing for Functional Structures/Surfaces
• Micro-Nano Devices and Systems (MEMS/NEMS) for physical applications, electronics, photonics and energy
• Micro & Nano Devices and Systems for Life Sciences, Chemistry, and Agrofood

The evaluation will be based on the assessment of the abstract reviewers, then by the performance of the presenters during the conference sessions.
Winner announcement: The MNE2022 Best Student Oral Award Winners will be announced and handled during the conference dinner on September 21st.

Oral communication of scientific results is a key aspect of the role of a scientist or engineer. Besides the technical quality of the achieved results, the slides need to be well organized and supported by a clear speech, leading to an overall appealing and inspiring presentation. Oral contributions by students, in the specific field of etching science and technology, will be evaluated by a panel of plasma etch experts with relevant experience. The award rules can be found here.

The evaluation will be based solely on the performance of the presenters during the PESM special sessions.
Winner announcement: The PESM Best Student Oral Award winner will be announced and handled at the end of the last PESM session, on September 21st.

 

The 2022 Micro and Nano Engineering Journal, Young Investigator Award and Lectureship
sponsored by
elsevierand by the MNE2022 conference

Honoring and Promoting a Young researcher active in the fields of Nanofabrication and Nanotechnology for Electronics, MEMS and Life Sciences
Microelectronic Engineering family (MEE/MNE) is proud to continue its long contribution started in 1983 in the field of processing for Micro- and Nano-scale Device and System fabrication. In the past 35 years MEE/MNE has expanded from the field of microelectronics to the fields of Nanotechnology and Microsystems following the rapid proliferation of microelectronics into many new areas and applications. Beyond electronics, MEE/MNE is now also focusing on fabrication of photonic, plasmonic, bioelectronic, electromechanical and fluidic devices and systems and their applications in the broad areas of electronics, energy, life sciences, and environment.

The application need to be filed through the Elsevier website. Deadline for applications: May 9th, 2022. The Lectureship will be presented at the MNE2022 Conference. The Lectureship award will include USD$1,000, plus travel costs (max. USD$1,000) to present the award lecture at the September 2022 MNE meeting, while MNE2022 conference will cover registration and contribute towards accommodation costs.
