In the lovely surroundings of the Carl-Friedrich von Siemens Stiftung at Schloss Nymphenburg in Munich the SENSE Kick-off workshop took place on 27 September.
Scientists, international experts and company representatives gathered to signal the start to the SENSE project, which is funded as FET-Open in Horizon 2020.
Dr Thomas Berghöfer, the general secretary of APPEC, explained to the audience the long way to SENSE, which was developed after the experience of two APPEC/ ASPERA Technology Fora on photosensors, and discussions on the LIGHT and other conferences to coordinate and support R&D activities towards the ideal low light-level photosensor.
Dr Razmik Mirzoyan, leader of work package “Roadmapping & Monitoring” mentioned in his talk that he is “dreaming of a sensor with a photon detection efficiency of 70%” – so let´s start working together on sowing the seeds for substantial sensor developments!
All the presentations from the conference can be found on the kick-off website.
Further information on the project will be soon available online, and you can also read updates on Twitter.
