SEMI Europe has announced recipients of the SEMI European Award and Special Service Award for 2023 at the SEMI Industry Strategy Symposium Europe (ISS Europe 2024).

Dallal Slimani, Chief Strategy Officer at Schneider Electric, was honoured with the European SEMI Award and Dr. Ivo Raaijmakers, Corporate Vice President and Executive Advisor at ASM, with the Special Service Award.

Established more than 30 years ago, the SEMI European Award and Special Service Award recognise key players in the global manufacturing supply chain, highlighting their leadership excellence, and strategic contributions that lead to critical advances in the semiconductor industry.

“We are honoured to recognise Dallal Slimani and Dr. Ivo Raaijmakers for their outstanding leadership and tremendous contributions to the semiconductor community,” said Laith Altimime, President of SEMI Europe. “These extraordinary leaders have been instrumental in helping the semiconductor industry fulfil its ambitions and inspiring future generations to drive toward a sustainable future.”

“This award serves as a testament to the hard work, dedication, and collaboration of an incredible partnership with SEMI and all our partners,” said Slimani. “I am grateful for this remarkable acknowledgment. I firmly believe that by partnering and engaging in the Catalyse programme, we can drive the necessary changes for our industry to contribute to a more environmentally sustainable planet. The Schneider Electric team takes pride in being part of this transformation.”

The SEMI European Award recognises Slimani’s leadership in driving sustainability initiatives and implementing circular economy principles in Europe for Schneider Electric, which culminated with the Catalyse programme, to help decarbonise the semiconductor value chain.

“It is exciting to see that ALD and PEALD, a little-known technology 25 years ago, turned into the critical deposition technology it is today,” said Dr. Raaijmakers. “Many teams at ASM contributed to this technology that today enables 3D devices with new advanced materials.”

Nominations for the 2024 SEMI European Award are open. Prior European SEMI Award recipients hailed from companies including Melexis, imec, Soitec, CEA-Leti, Technical University of Dresden, Catholic University of Leuven, STMicroelectronics, EV Group, Infineon, and the Fraunhofer Institute.
