European Photonics Industry Consortium and Singapore's LUX Photonics Consortium collaborating

On 22 April, professor Tjin Swee Chuan, chairman of the LUX Photonics Consortium in Singapore, and Carlos Lee, director general of EPIC (European Photonics Industry Consortium), signed a collaboration agreement, witnessed by George Loh, program director at the National Research Foundation of Singapore's Prime Minister's Office.

EPIC and LUX Photonics Consortium aim to cooperative on activities involving technological and commercial advancement in photonics. The partnership will encourage direct contact and cooperation between the two consortia and its members, as well as the exchange of information and contacts. It also aims to be the platform for members of one consortium to reach the other's relevant government representatives, public funding bodies and other entities in the region, and to co-host visits by delegates of each consortium's commercial trade missions and business events.

Representing 250 companies across 28 countries, EPIC is an industry association that promotes the sustainable development of organizations working in photonics. Members encompass the entire value chain from lighting, photovoltaic, photonics integrated circuits (PICs), optical components, lasers, sensors, imaging, displays, projectors, optic fiber and all other photonics-related technologies. EPIC aims to foster a vibrant photonics ecosystem by maintaining a strong network and acting as a catalyst and facilitator for technological and commercial advancement.  

LUX is an initiative set up at national level with support from Singapore's National Research Foundation, with the vision of establishing a photonics academia and industry network in the Asia Pacific region, bringing academia and industry together for the common purpose of innovating new products or technologies enabled by photonics. With nine competitive research programs supported and 13 founding company members, LUX aims to serve as a platform to translate photonics research into diverse applications underpinned by the value chain created in Singapore. Research expertise includes fiber technologies, III-V optoelectronics and biophotonics, optical and laser applications, nanophotonics and metamaterials, lighting and displays.
