Discover how photonics is a key-enabler for innovation in different domains
Photonics – the science and technology of harnessing light – is everywhere around us now. Yet we are only at the beginning of what is possible. As one of the six pillar Key Enabling Technologies (KETs), photonics is essential to the functioning of the new applications which are powering Industry 4.0 and which are needed to address our major societal challenges. New advances in photonics will revolutionize so many industries and have far-reaching implications for business and society. Photonics technologies will be used to launch all sorts of new and better products in wide-ranging end-user industries from sustainable energy and environmental safety, to healthcare and wearables, to intelligent transport and communications systems, as well as being a key enabling technology for the transformation of production methods and new business models in European manufacturing.
The Online Smart Farming Conference takes place on 1 October 2021, 14:00 – 18:00 CET during Photonics Applications Week, an umbrella event covering real-life applications of photonics. The conference focuses on digital technology and data-driven innovations in agriculture. The main topics approach precision agriculture, available technologies for Farming 4.0 – drones, sensors, Internet of Things, Multi-spectral imaging, Robotics, Big Data, AI and more. Furthermore, attendees can learn from real business situations that companies were confronted with.
