IndTechIndustrial Technologies conference took place from 9 to 11 April 2014 in Athens, Greece in Megaron Conference Centre under the Greek Presidency of the Council of the EU. More than 1300 people from over 60 countries participated in the event.

As a part of the conference the IndustryTech 2014 exhibition was held where three projects, which AMIRES participates in, were promoted: AMBASSADOR, TRIBUTE and UnivSEM project. At a joint booth of AMBASSADOR and TRIBUTE projects Schneider Electric and NXP sensors measuring and evaluating temperature, humidity and light were exhibited. The stand was a success as it was chosen to be among 10 finalists for the most innovative exhibitor award. UnivSEM booth presented the stage of TESCAN microscope which is compatible with several analytical tools that can be integrated into it. Projects’ fact sheets and other materials were distributed there.

On 10 April AMIRES organised together with the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM) a small apero in front of the booths focused on industrially-driven projects with great impact stressing the importance of Swiss participation in European research projects. Swiss NCP for ICT and NMP, Ms Marion Tobler, gave an introduction speech with up-to-date information on Swiss position towards Horizon2020 programme.
