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.



Dr. Jose Pozo is Director of Technology and Innovation at EPIC (European Photonics Industry Consortium). As EPIC’s CTO, he represents 450 companies active in the field of Photonics. His job consists on actively engaging with them and provide them with tools to strengthen their position in the supply chain; such tools are the organization of 25 technology workshops per year, provision of market intelligence and finding B2B leads. He has the vision that the future of optoelectronic manufacturing can take place in Europe to a large extent, and as part of that vision he is actively involved in the EU-funded pilot lines. He has 20 years’ background in photonics technology, market knowledge, and a large network within the industrial and academic photonics landscape.
