  • UVphotonics is a founding member of the association "Advanced UV for Life e.V." (more info)

The association "Advanced UV for Life e.V. - Verband zur Förderung von UV-Halbleitertechnologien" brings together the competences from industry and science along the entire value chain - design and fabrication of UV semiconductor devices to its application. The goal of the association is to advance technological developments and quickly transfer research results into applications. The association will be used as a communication and cooperation platform to discuss technological and scientific issues and to initiate industrial and research projects. Furthermore, it will not only provide the general public, politicians and the media with comprehensive information on UV-based technology but will also serve as a central interface for expert bodies, committees, and legal and normative regulations. (more info)
