The purpose of this exceptional meeting is to bring experts and leaders from industrial companies around the world to discuss photonics technology developments, applications, and challenges. The event is by invitation only at CTO/CEO level (companies less than 100 employees), VP R&D / VP Engineering (companies 100-250 employees),  Director R&D (companies more than 250 employees), NO sales, NO marketing, with an audience of around 100 participants from 30 countries. The presentations will be short (15 minutes) followed by 5 minutes discussion moderated  by Dr. Jose Pozo, EPIC’s Director of Technology, renowned for his exceptional ability to engage the audience to explore synergy and business opportunities. The event is very much networking oriented with many networking opportunities (lunch, dinner, reception, coffee breaks) and a detailed participant list will be provided in advance (take a look at the participants list of 2020 issue).
The EPIC World Photonics Technology Summit is EPIC’s highest-level technology meeting. The event gathers 100 experts and leaders from industrial companies around the world to discuss photonics technology developments, applications, and challenges.
