“Photonics and photonic technology enabled products are all around you. Your mobile phone has a photonics camera and a photonics display. Your television has a photonics display and you interact with it through a photonics enabled handheld controller. Your computer has a photonics display, a photonics camera, and your printer has a photonics scanner. Your home has photonic LED lighting and is protected by infrared photonic motion sensors. Everywhere you look, you see photonics and, everyday it is highly probable that you use several or more photonic enabled products”
The reason for this Photonics Technology and Innovation Event
Photonics is in Europe seen as one of the essential key technologies for the digital transformation and the green transition of Europe. France and the Netherlands play a major role in these transformations. According to Photonics Market Study 2017 (Optech Consulting), France and the Netherlands are in the top positions in Europe, in Photonics production and Photonics Employees.
Both countries want to learn from each other, look for common economic benefits and technical/research challenges in the field of photonic technologies and stay a frontrunner thanks to new photonics enabled innovations.
In 2021 a series of online events have been organized. From 2022 we will continue with online events (webinars) and when possible on-site (events).
Who should participate in the ‘France – the Netherlands Photonics Technology and Innovation Event’?
- Photonic companies, institutes/universities interested in photonics technology development and research;
- Industrial stakeholders looking for new (photonic) enabled technologies in applications in France and the Netherlands;
- Companies, SMEs, start-ups, clusters and associations as well as research institutes, universities and policy makers who are interested to establish and play an active part in this cooperation.
This event aims for a broad collaborative approach, it is therefore our pleasure to invite you to participate in our cooperation platform. Let’s work together to move forward!
