High-speed Laser Microprocessing
Recent advances in high average power, industrial ultrafast lasers have open the way for new laser processing applications, combining high throughput and superior precision and quality. Taking full advantage of the laser source however requires new processing strategies and beam engineering technologies, which will be the subject of this industrial session. 

Global Industry Update
A new report from the SPIE Industry Team presents the third biennial assessment of the world’s core photonics components marketplace. Based on a detailed review of supplier revenues and technology trends, this presentation delivers a unique global perspective of the photonics business, its key players, and its markets. 

Navigating the funding landscape in Europe
The funding landscape in Europe is complex and potentially overwhelming with a multitude of pan-European and national funding mechanisms available. This session explores some of the options available to those seeking funds and suggests strategies for navigating them. 

Biophotonics
Photonics has been recognized by the European Union as one of (six) Key Enabling Technologies and is a source of numerous new applications in the life sciences. This industry session will provide an overview of recent innovative industrial developments in biophotonics that promise significant health benefits and market potential.
