EPIC Workgroup on Sustainable Photonics
Online Event

Climate change is amongst the biggest challenges for humanity in the coming century. Photonics can provide solutions by reducing environmental impacts, harnessing renewable energy, and providing novel measurement techniques for monitoring technologies. Within the Workgroup, we want to educate ourselves and improve our understanding of circular design and sustainable production methods. Identification of new green markets and opportunities for growth is within the scope of the work done by our members.
This is the 3rd meeting already and we are excited to define more concrete goals during this one. We will have 1-2 keynote speakers as well as the general discussion during which we will decide on which United Nations sustainability goals we would like to put our efforts.
Join this meeting and make benefit of the joined powers of the EPIC members to nurture sustainability withing your company!
