Laith Altimime, President of SEMI Europe

These extraordinary leaders have been instrumental in helping the semiconductor industry fulfill its ambitions and inspiring future generations to drive toward a sustainable future.

Laith Altimime, President of SEMI Europe

This award serves as a testament to the hard work, dedication, and collaboration of an incredible partnership with SEMI and all our partners.

Dallal Slimani

I am grateful for this remarkable acknowledgment. I firmly believe that by partnering and engaging in the Catalyze program, 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.

Dallal Slimani

The SEMI European Award recognizes Slimani’s leadership in driving sustainability initiatives and implementing circular economy principles in Europe for Schneider Electric, which culminated with the Catalyze program, to help decarbonize 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.

Dr. Raaijmakers

Many teams at ASM contributed to this technology that today enables 3D devices with new advanced materials.

Dr. Raaijmakers

Dr. Raaijmakers’ outstanding career and leadership was pivotal in the research, development and commercialization of Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) and Plasma-enhanced ALD (PEALD) equipment and processes, technologies that shaped and continue to influence the semiconductor industry. The ingenuity of ASM’s Finnish ALD and Korean PEALD groups and integrating their innovations into a worldwide product portfolio drove the market success of the two technologies. Dr. Raaijmakers joined ASM in 1996 and served as CTO from 1999 through 2022.

Nominations for the 2024 SEMI European Award are open. Please see the award guidelines. 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.
