Personal Profile

Your personal profile will act as a powerful networking tool with which you can connect with other members of the microelectronics universe or be contacted by them. You can use your personal profile to demonstrate your interests and expertise, so professionals from the most relevant organizations can be in touch with you.

Click 'Your account', then click 'Edit your profile'. Here you can enable your chat system, choose your visibility, write a bio, add your job title, and include your interests.

You should use your bio to demonstrate your interests, experience, and expertise, so that other members can network with you. When editing your profile, you can use the 'interest list' box to emphasize your area of expertise, e.g., 'particle metrology'. You can see a list containing the interests that other users have chosen to publicize as their area of expertise - this may provide some inspiration.

Click on the 'Members' tab, and then click on 'People'. Here you can search a network of microelectronics professionals based on name, company, or job title.

Click on the profile of another member, and then click 'Send message'. A pop-up chat box should appear, which you can use to type your message. Click enter or press send to deliver the message.

You can edit your location when you edit your profile. Click 'Your account' and then click 'Edit your profile'.

Click 'Members' and then click 'Companies'. Here you can search based on the company name. However, if you wish to search company by company type (e.g. technology providers), services (e.g. ultrapure water production), and tools or equipment (e.g. filters), then you should use the EcoSystem page.

If you have forgotten your password, please click the link to change the password and access your account. If there are continued problems, please email contact@ultrapuremicro.com. If your account has expired, you may need to renew your membership through clicking 'Join UPM', choosing your relevant membership option, and then following through to the payment portal.

Insight posts

Any member can share an insight post, by clicking on 'Members' and then clicking on 'Insights' and then selecting 'Submit your insight post'. Excellent insights will be shared in our monthly newsletter for added visibility.

On the form, you can choose to submit your post with a title, subtitle, banner image, and a list of tags which might help a user searching for it. To make sure your post is published, please tick the 'published' box, and choose the date at which you are publishing. You can include an image in your insight post by clicking the attachment symbol

Any topic related to microelectronics is welcome! Insight posts are designed to be informal, LinkedIn-style posts, which could just be a paragraph or a list of bullet points. Data and technical details are not necessary, but welcome if you would like.

We only ask that insight posts do not have excessive marketing content. It is okay to mention products or projects your company is working on, but please relate it to what is new and changing in the industry. Aim to share knowledge.

Business profile

Firstly, you may need to check if your company is listed under a slightly different name, or under a parent company.

If your company has under 5 people, it may not be listed.

If your company is not listed, but you feel it should be listed, please contact orla.mccoy@globalwaterintel.com

Community Partners have complete control over their own company profile, including description, tags, and any promotional material. Profile Managers will be able to edit by going to 'Your Account' and 'Edit your Company Profile'.

Members without a Community Partnership cannot edit their own profiles. However, if you think something on your profile is out of date, inaccurate, or if any important aspects are missing, please email orla.mccoy@globalwaterintel.com

Company profiles are designed to be informative tools to navigate the microelectronics EcoSystem. Community Partners have added brand visibility, and can therefore include a logo.

You may use the EcoSystem to navigate the supply chain for facilities by company type (e.g. technology providers), services (e.g. ultrapure water production), and tools or equipment (e.g. filters), then you should use the EcoSystem page.


You should receive information about events through your email, or you may be able to see the event listed on the Calendar page. There will be a link with which to register. If you register, the day before the event starts, we will send you the link to enter the event on the Remo platform.

We send information for UPM Community Events via email. If you think you are not on our mailing list, or if you would like any clarification about events, please email orla.mccoy@globalwaterintel.com

We want UPM to be your one-stop shop for several important events happening in the semiconductor manufacturing sphere. We will also highlight important events held by SEMI, IRDS, or other organizations with which we have ties.

UPM University

The UPM University is designed to tackle the expertise and talent shortage in the semiconductor manufacturing industry, especially within ultrapure water production and water management. The program is designed for young engineers beginning their journey in water treatment within semiconductor manufacturing. Led by industry experts, the course will cover water engineering basics, and create the next generation of UPW and water management engineers.

You can preliminarily register interest by clicking the UPM University tab on the UPM platform.


You must be logged in to watch recordings from previous events. You can watch recordings of past conference presentations or community events via the 'Resources' tab. You can search based on author of the presentation, the relevant companies, or by key word.
