The smart integration of photonic components and modules is enabling new developments in medical, automotive, consumer and other big markets. At the same time, the need for new approaches in the fields of Quantum Technologies or Transceivers Beyond 400G are creating strong links between the industrial academic communities. The purpose of this presentation is to summarize some of this developments and start a discussion about opportunities for engaging with industry and providing solutions to some of the most important unmet needs.



Carlos Lee is director general at EPIC, Europe’s photonics industry association. As part of the EPIC mission, Carlos works closely with industrial photonic companies to ensure a vibrant and competitive ecosystem by maintaining a strong international network and acting as a catalyst and facilitator for technological and commercial advancement. He brings with him a strong background in microelectronics which was acquired through several management positions held at the international association SEMI. He has been responsible in Europe for the SEMI International Standards program, managed technical and executive programs, and together with the advisory board advocated for a more competitive semiconductor and photovoltaic manufacturing industry. 

Carlos has a BBA in Finance and an MBA in Leadership & Change Management from United Business Institutes. He lives with his spouse and three children in Belgium.
