ESOTRAC took part in the EC Workshop “Smart Bioelectronic and Wearable Systems“ from 22. - 23. October 2019 in Brussels. Market leaders, innovators, researchers, professional and user organizations discussed about technology and market challenges and opportunities in addressing health, ageing, agri-food, security, environment & climate change. The central aims and recent developments within ESOTRAC were presented to the 120 participants on a poster. ESOTRAC scientist Dr. Christian Zakian from HMGU highly appreciated discussions and networking with colleagues from closely but also distantly related areas and mentioned the potential to adapt new technologies to photonic applications as in ESOTRAC.
