Laser Components aap


Photonics sensors have a huge potential for water quality monitoring, which is a fundamental tool in the management of freshwater resources. This meeting will discuss the technologies available for real-time and direct monitoring of quality factors in water, including purification, pushing collaborations between component manufacturers, system integrators and users of the technology.

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
