The European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) and the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC) have signed a collaboration agreement to bring together their respective members.

The partnership will encourage cooperation between the members, including participation at events, collaboration on information exchange and promotion, and advisory mandates to develop an efficient and sustainable industry.

The European Photonics Industry Consortium is a non-profit industry association with more than 600 members. Its goal is to promote the sustainable development of organisations working in the field of photonics. Its members encompass the entire value chain from LED lighting, photovoltaic solar energy, silicon photonics, optical components, lasers, sensors, displays, projectors, fibre optics, and other photonic related technologies.

Dr Jose Pozo, CTO of EPIC, said: 'Having EMVA on board as a partner brings the opportunity to EPIC members to build potential collaborations and partnerships with the key players of the machine vision industry. The main goal of this cooperation is to facilitate the communication between different parts of the value chain towards building common voice for the interests of companies using machine vision technologies.'

Thomas Lübkemeier, general manager at EMVA, commented: 'The collaboration with EPIC supports our members and the wider machine vision industry by strengthening links across a broad value chain and increasing opportunities for collaboration. At the same time, worldwide standards provide an important basis for industry growth, and we look forward to working with the extensive network of EPIC to support this topic.'
