EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Endoscopy

17 June 2020

15:00 – 17:30 CEST

Future endoscopic cameras will integrate Raman, OCT and broad field of view hyperspectral cameras. The meeting will discuss the challenges in the integration of biocompatible micro-optics, especially fibres and detectors with the medical system integrators.

Spirit of the meetings

EPIC Online Technology Meetings are neither ordinary webinars nor conventional online meetings. They are extraordinary in terms of their speakers, attendees, and moderators.

Only a limited group of people will join each meeting. The speakers and attendees represent companies along the entire value chain: component suppliers, system integrators, and end-users.

The spirit of the meetings is to identify ways and reasons for working together. Speakers will give a short presentation about their technologies, solutions and needs related to the topic, and will answer the EPIC questions: “What can they do for you? What can you do for them?” Together with the attendees in the Zoom room, they will exchange expertise and new visions in a round table discussion, which will be continued at the end of the meeting resulting in new business relationships.
