Easy cleaning and disinfection of surfaces is a relevant requirement for hospitals and other social services as well for industries such as food processing and pharmaceutical. Moreover, it becomes more relevant for other sectors like home appliances. This meeting will discuss the needs of end-users for surface disinfection and treatments taking into account the most photonics technologies available, from UVC germicidal irradiation to laser functionalization and structuring of surfaces.

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
