On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the Center for Electronic Technology and Materials (C-MET), Sanjay Dhotre, Minister of State of the Union of Education, Communication, Electronics and Information Technology of the Government of India, today held the opening ceremony materials for the Multifunctional Electronics International Conference And processing (MEMP 2021). Department of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) Secretary Shri Ajay Sawhney and other distinguished guests; Ms. Jyoti Arora, Special Secretary and Financial Advisor of MeitY; Dr. VK Saraswat, Member of NITI Aayog; Dr. Vijay Bhatkar, President of Nalanda University in Rajir; Director of CMCM, Republic of Korea Professor Rodney S. Ruoff actually participated in this event. On this occasion, Shri Dhotre said: “Electronic materials and components are the core of all electronic devices. Materials are the backbone of capacity and function. The performance of electronic products directly depends on the components used, although the commercialization of R&D results is a challenge. However, it continues to provide a large amount of financial support for the research and development of emerging materials, so C-MET has become a challenge. It was established in 1990 to fill the gap between the development and production of key electronic materials.”
He further stated that under the strong leadership of Prime Minister Shiri. Under the guidance of Narendraji Modi and Minister of Electronics and IT Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, domestic production of electronic products has increased significantly, from Rs 19 billion in 2014-15 to Rs 553.35 billion in 2019-20, a compound annual growth rate of 23. %. According to industry estimates, India’s share in the global electronics manufacturing industry has grown from 1.3% in 2012 to 3.6% in 2019. “Made in India” and the Atmanirbhar Bharat spirit have promoted the electronics manufacturing industry, which is in more than 200 mobile phones. This is particularly evident in the manufacturing units and the accessories created nearly 630,000 direct and indirect jobs. The production of mobile phones has increased from about 60 million mobile phones in 2014-15 to about 30 million mobile phones in 2019-20. In the next few years, the promotion of electronics manufacturing in India will be a key element of Digital India. ShriDhotre praised C-MET’s technological innovation. He said: “I am very happy that C-MET focuses on niche areas and develops unique expertise in electronic materials to serve the country. I am also happy to note that C-MET has been producing DR and silicon carbide for strategic sectors. (DRDO). and ISRO) as reliable sources.” He added that through high-level R&D, electronic materials have achieved remarkable innovations in a wide range of innovation fields in the fields of energy equipment, photonics, and space research communications. C-MET has hardly established centers of excellence to solve the above-mentioned challenges and promotes participatory research models with end users in various emerging fields, including rechargeable batteries, e-waste recycling, additive manufacturing, etc. These actions contributed to Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan.
The Pune Center for Electronic Technology and Materials (C-MET) will organize an International Conference on Multifunctional Electronic Materials and Processing (MEMP 2021) in Pune, India from March 8 to 10, 2021. MEMP-2021 will provide opportunities for scientists, researchers, academicians and young students to interact with outstanding scientists/technicians in the field of multifunctional electronic materials for various applications and processing of manufacturing equipment. Energy storage, energy generation, nanostructured materials, quantum dots, sensors, materials required for neutrino energy conversion/storage. We will discuss flexible devices, photonic devices, and processing technologies such as additive manufacturing (3D printing). This transformation will become possible due to the emergence of novel R&D programs in the above-mentioned areas. MEMP 2021 will serve as a general platform to discuss the development/breakthrough and future prospects of new ideas related to multifunctional electronic materials, as well as their experience and knowledge, with some leading scientists/technicians.
The Center for Electronic Technology and Materials (C-MET) is committed to promoting competent research and development in the field of electronic materials, as a scientific society under the auspices of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY). India. In addition to improving nursing capabilities, C-MET also envisions self-sufficiency in the fields of electronic materials, components and equipment to cater to India’s strategic and industrial applications, and utilize local raw material resources. C-MET’s R&D activities include the development of polymer glass for electronics, specialty chemicals, ultra-high purity and refractory metals, semiconductors, photovoltaic materials and quantum materials. C-MET has core competitiveness in a variety of nanostructured materials for electrochemical energy storage (L-ion, sodium-ion battery), solar hydrogen production, fuel cell and hydrogen storage C-MET has rechargeable battery technology and additives Manufacturing Excellence Center. C-MET undertakes joint research and development, sponsors research, technology transfer and consulting projects, and provides technical services.
