3rd YESvGaN project meeting at Bosch in Renningen, Germany
(01/02 June 2022)

After one year of hard work, the YESvGaN consortium finally met in real life! The first day an update of all work packages was given, showing that despite all challenges we are gradually advancing towards the industrialization of vertical GaN membrane transistors. The presentations were followed by a poster session by all partners showing the expertise of many partners is complementary which makes this project into a great success.
At the second day, face to face technical sessions were organized. After this we all went home with a satisfied feeling. Thank you to Bosch to organize this meeting in Renningen. We are looking forward to see everyone again soon!
