Workshop on Photonics for Life Science and Regional Innovation Strategies

In the framework of a EU project called ÉPRISE, PhotonicSweden is organising a workshop on October 17 in Kista (Stockholm) just before the annual conference “Optics&Photonics in Sweden”, October 18&19 at the same location.

The main themes of this workshop will be:

  1. How do Swedish companies active in the field of photonics manage to enter Life Science markets: Medical, Pharma, Agriculture and Food?
  2. How do regional innovation strategies support these companies and benefit from their growth?
