Micro-optics, PICs, optical fibers, miniaturized detectors and many other photonics technologies enable novel approaches both for diagnostic and therapy procedures. The meeting will address the challenges in the integration of these technologies into widely used tools, such as e.g. endoscopes. Clinicians, medical system integrators and the entire supply chain of photonics technologies companies will come together to discuss the challenges and to find ways to work together.


Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships. 

Watch us LIVE on YouTube
