Photonics mission

March 16, 2019 - March 22, 2019

Are you a Dutch company, university or research institute active in the photonics and are you interested in collaborating with China? Join our photonics innovation mission in March! The goal of the mission is to identify R&D opportunities, explore new applications and build relations in China.

China (‘factory of the world’) is in the middle of a transition to a high-tech country and a long time leader for large infrastructure projects. This creates an enormous market for photonics solutions such as fiber optic sensing. China is also working hard to develop this technology with large companies such as Huawei and ZTE, who are leadings in developing 5G technology.

This draft program gives an overview of the planned company visits, network activities, seminars and fair visits. Because of the different focus of integrated photonics and fiber optics sensing, most activities are organised in parallel.

We happily hear about your wishes to include them in the development of the final program.


The participation costs are €250 (excl. VAT). This includes:

  • collective program
  • domestic flights and trains (flight Hongkong to Wuhan en train from Wuhan to Shanghai)
  • transfers from and to different program activities
  • lunch and diners mentioned in the program

Excluded are:

  • travel and residence costs (hotels en international flights)
  • all other individual costs


Do you want to join? Sign up before February 6, 2019.
