Hungary/Romania Section Jt. Chapter EP21/NANO42, Chapter Kick-off Meeting


On the 6th of December, 2019 the IEEE directors approved our petition to add the Nanotechnology Council (NTC) to our existing Electronics Packaging Society (EPS) Chapter. At that moment, the Hungarian & Romanian EPS chapter – which was established 20 years ago by Professors Zsolt Illyefalvi-Vitéz and Paul Svasta – became a joint EPS & NTC chapter. This chapter kick-off meeting will be held for the occasion of this expansion.
