Photonics is a field of science that concentrates on producing and manipulating light. It is used in applications such as virtual reality and machine vision. Bioeconomy uses renewable biomass such as wood for different applications. Most recent innovations have taken place in high added value products such as textiles and cosmetics. Together, photonics and bioeconomy can produce applications such as laser wood-cutting, remote sensing and measurement of natural resources, and intelligently optimized LED lighting for growing vegetables.
“Photonics is a disruptive technology which fulfills its potential when combined with other fields. New applications are constantly discovered and growth projections are remarkable”, says Juha Purmonen, Development Manager of Joensuu Science Park and one of the event's organizers.
