„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.

We hereby proudly announce:

1st EUFN Workshop

Following 11 highly successful D-A-CH FIB workshops, the 1st EUFN Workshop will be held from July 4th – July 5th 2017 in Graz, Austria. We are looking forward to a fruitful meeting and enlightening discussions!
