Workshop Focus:
The International Microelectronics Assembly and Packaging Society (IMAPS) is organizing an Advanced Technology Workshop and Tabletop Exhibition on “Packaging the Next Generation of Nano Devices” to be held April 30 in Albany, New York. With each new generation of high density devices, the packaging community faces ever more difficult challenges. Diverse technologies such as: 3D, 2.5D, silicon carrier, MEMs, Hybrid electro-opto packages, etc require different packaging technologies, different materials, different processing, testing etc. All these variables are the focus of this conference which will be held in the heart of New York State's premier silicon device fabrication center.

A New Model in Public-Private Partnerships: Driving Technology Innovation & Commercialization

Michael Fancher
Vice President for Business Development and Economic Outreach,
Director of the New York State Center for Advanced Technology in Nanoelectronics and Nanomaterials (CATN2), and
Associate Professor of Nanoeconomics at the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE)

Over the past fifteen years while at the College, he has led the development of innovative public-private partnerships focusing on research-phase pipeline that enables academic-driven (multi-discipline) solutions, development-phase resources that respond to government-driven (technology push) challenges, and deployment-phase capabilities that captures industry-driven (market-pull) opportunities. As Associate Professor of Nanoeconomics, Mr. Fancher has been profiled in the “Mover and Shaker” and “Expert Perspective” sections of Semiconductor International Magazine for his work in the development of emerging theory, principles and methods for nanoeconomics and the changing roles of government, industry and academia. His research focus includes alternative technology development process evolution, national competitiveness strategies, and regional development models.

Mr. Fancher received his M.A. in Economics (International) from the University at Albany in 1988, his B.S. in business administration (accounting and finance) from Syracuse University in 1982 and was certified by New York State in public accountancy in 1986. Mr. Fancher has been recognized for his professional accomplishments pertaining to industry, university, and government partnerships including: the New York State Governor commendations for legislative achievement, testimony before federal and state government committees, and presentations to industry boards of directors including the Semiconductor Research Corporation, IBM, among many others. Before joining CNSE, he was Deputy Budget Director for the New York State Assembly Ways and Means Committee (Project Development Finance) where he designed economic development programs to assist strategic industries, strengthen regional infrastructure, and accelerate technology commercialization, and previously practiced as a Certified Public Accountant for several years.
