„We intend to establish a network platform promoting Focused Ion Beam (FIB) processing and closely related technologies. We wish to promote and advance already existing concepts and technologies as well as partnerships on the one hand and establish new, interdisciplinary approaches and collaborations in Europe and beyond on the other hand.“

In 2007 the “D-A-CH FIB Arbeitskreis” (D for Germany, A for Austria, CH for Switzerland) meeting was held in Graz, Austria. Since then annual workshops were organised in Germany, Switzerland and Austria and not only increased in participants but also attracted the attention and interest of further European countries. Responding to this natural and most welcome development, the Steering Committee felt the need to rename the “D-A-CH FIB Arbeitskreis” into the “European Focused Ion Beam Network” in order to respond to and enhance this ongoing internationalisation.
