The first photonics event about real-world business applications
Photonics – the science of light – is shaping 21st century innovations in virtually all industries. The Photonics Application Week (PHAPPS Week) is geared towards the business professional who wants to know more about the practical applications of photonics in his or her industry.
Phapps week is all about practice and applications. During the workshops, exhibitions, lectures, networking events, debates and hackathons you get first-hand experience and insight into how the fast growing field of photonics can benefit your business and industry.
As often with a new technology the focus is on the technology and what it can do, Technology Push. Many times the related industry is inwards looking, which is important for the required gain in performance and quality of the technology. But at a certain moment the industry needs to turn to the enduser and needs to ask what they need, Market Pull. But that is not easy!
The state of photonics technology is right now at this turning point.
Now it is therefore important that the enduser (the application areas / verticals) learn about Photonics and more importantly tell the photonics industry what they need.
The PHAPPS Week is the week where this matchmaking takes place and where the verticals invite the photonic industry.
To share knowledge and insights in the business and technology, do business and create collaborations. So it should NOT be a get together from all people from within the Photonics Industry! Not just conferences, but workshops, demos, tours and hackathons as well. Market pull versus technology push.
It is obvious that the level of knowledge on photonics amongst the professionals within the verticals varies enormously. The same counts for photonics professionals. So both sides have to be educated.
Therefore it is important to have several type of events which can cover one or more of the following items.
|For the Verticals professionals||For the Photonics professionals|
Each weekday will have a focus on one or more specific vertical/applications areas, see below. Per day we invite organisations to organise events for instance in healthcare topics like oncology, dermatology etc. They are free to fill in the content of the program, but the program committee will curate whether it fits or not and will also provide guidance/advice so that there are no conflicting events. These activities can be free and/or paid, but must fit in the schedule / program.
|Monday 30 Sep||Tuesday 1 Oct||Wednesday 2 Oct||Thursday 3 Oct||Friday 4 Oct|
|Verticals / Applications||Verticals / Applications||Verticals / Applications||Verticals / Applications||Verticals / Applications|
