Creation of EPIC

Thomas Pearsall created the European Photonics Industry Consortium and presented his idea of EPIC to Dr. Henri Rajbenbach of the Electronics & Communications unit of the European Commission. The response of the European Commission was positive, and to help ensure a strong impact, it attached the EPIC proposal as an additional work package to the existing OPTIMIST program.

2004

The workshop formula

In the first two years of operations, EPIC organized European-wide workshops on LEDs for Automotive Lighting, Photonic Components for Telecommunications, Organic LEDs for Displays & Lighting, and Laser-assisted Manufacturing. Today EPIC is arranging between 80-90 different events per year in various topics important to its members.

Day of Photonics

The first “Day of Photonics” initiated by EPIC took place on 21 October 2014, 21 years after the General Conference of Weights and Measures adopted the value of 299,792.458 kilometers per second (km/s) as the speed of light. More than 100 activities were organized in more than 30 countries around the world and included all kinds of public demonstrations on the impact of photonics on our day-to-day lives, as well as internal corporate discussions on business opportunities.
