Founded in 1992, the Research Association today represents the world's largest network in the field of Mechatronic Integrated Devices with approximately 100 members - industrial companies and research institutions. In 1996 we joined the German Federation of Industrial Research Associations (AiF) with steadily increasing subsidies, which currently amount to approx. 1.8 million euros (Status 02/2020).
In addition to the international MID Congress, which was first held in 1994, further events and participations were launched. These include the network event MID Summit, numerous workshops and working groups, individual booths at LOPEC, Rapid.Tech 3D and SMT as well as an approx. 120 m² large joint booth on leading exhibitions on electronics like electronica.
The main goals of the Association are marketing, promotion and further development of MID technology. This strengthens the market position of our members in the long term and enables innovative products and processes.
