The European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC) and the China Solid State Lighting Alliance (CSA) have signed a memorandum of understanding to further strengthen their existing collaboration. Additional emphasis will be placed on increasing public understanding of the science of photonics, collaborating on information exchange, projects, events, and advisory mandates with an aim of fostering cooperation and, ultimately, bringing the best new lighting technologies to market.
CSA is a Chinese non-for-profit organisation that provides a range of innovative services for emerging industries including solid state lighting. CSA currently has more than 500 worldwide members. Adhering to the principles of ‘cooperation, win-win, innovation and sustainability’, CSA aims to support government policies, build an environment for industrial development, and promote innovation resource integration.
