Photonics industry is key to optimizing efficiency and cost-effectiveness of Green Energy Generation. This meeting will gather industrials from Photovoltaics, Wind, Wave, Hydrogen generators to challenge manufacturers to move forward with lasers, materials, sensors, and detectors toward Europe’s goal of climate neutrality before 2050

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.
