Competence for research and business
The European Society of Thin Films (EFDS) is a non-profit association active in the field of thin-film technology. The office is located in Dresden – in the centre of the European semiconductor industry and in an important centre of vacuum technology plant engineering.
We have been meeting the challenges of our industry for 30 years. Through your trust, you have been instrumental in shaping these developments. This valuable cooperation has resulted in an innovative foundation for mutual success.
We say thank you.

Plan your participation now!
You will learn about the focal points of current and future developments. You will meet the industry players from industry and research institutions.
You talk about ambitious topics. You find your partners for joint projects. You look at the issue from a new perspective.
I wanted to thank you for the wonderful work EFDS has done in organising PSE 2018. The events were great and this was the biggest cake I have ever seen in my life! Good luck with your other upcoming exhibitions, we look forward to PSE 2020!
I led the workshop "ALD for Industry" in January 2017 in Dresden with very professional support from the EFDS team. I had the opportunity to see how much work goes behind organising a successful workshop for the industry and the key elements of logistics and planning. The number of participants far exceeded our expectations and the positive feedback from participants, sponsors and invited speakers was overwhelming: it was a top-class event that we should repeat. After the workshop, one participant wrote in a personal note: "ALD for industry was the best workshop I have attended so far!"
Vacuum and plasma technologies play an important role in the development of groundbreaking innovations, but also in the production of many everyday objects. All European key enabling technologies are largely dependent on the innovative capacity of plasma and vacuum technologies.
With their high level of competence, Dresden's actors promote this innovative strength. Their close networking in the EFDS network and the synergy potentials available there sustainably support this technology development. The state capital Dresden is actively involved in the coordination of innovative consortia and projects.
