As a cross-sectional technology, photonics already enables numerous high-tech applications. In order for companies to continue to be successful in the global market in times of great change and challenge, trends must be recognized, possible risks and opportunities evaluated, and the right strategic decisions made for a successful course in the future.
Optence e.V., the photonics network from Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate, has dealt intensively with these issues over the past few months as part of the project “Photonics Road Map – Recognizing Future Trends, Exploiting Market Opportunities”, which was funded by the Ministry of Economics, Transport, Agriculture and Viticulture of Rhineland-Palatinate. The result was presented to guests from politics, business and research on November 19 at SCHOTT AG in Mainz and recorded in the brochure “Photonics Road Map”.
The Robotix Academy was represented by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Vette-Steinkamp with his presentation “Photonic for Greentech”.
