The 4th edition of the Tech Tour European Photonics Venture Forum (EPVF) is organized by Tech Tour as part of the H2020 Innovation Action, Actphast, and in conjunction with the coordination and the support action Nextpho21, both co-funded by the European Commission, part of the programme ICT-30-2017 - photonics KET 2017. It will take place on 29 & 30 May at ICFO.The goal of the event is very simple: bringing high-tech entrepreneurs, active in photonics that are looking for external private capital, together with investors, who have appetite for this.

The European Photonics Venture Forum aims to market the photonics sector to a wider investor community and create channels to finance for high-potential photonics businesses. The Forum will ensure photonics becomes a pillar of local regional development plans, mirroring the European strategy and driving more support and funding to the sector.

The European Photonics Venture Forum is an annual event in a new city each time and the activities of Europe’s leading photonics clusters. Photonics is the technology which focusses on all technical applications of light and includes lasers, photovoltaics, lighting, screens and displays, sensors, optical fibers and optoelectronics. It is at the heart of the most advanced engineering systems such as cameras, cellphones, printers, barcode scanners, medical and industrial lasers, high speed communications and computing, aviation, power generation, spectroscopy, holography, bio photonics, agriculture and robotics.

Join us to discover the importance of the photonics industry, latest trends from Europe’s fast-growing photonics ecosystem, kick-starting a new generation of entrepreneurs and innovations.
