Webinaire DIVA : Maturity of photonic technologies for the agri-food sector
Feeding the world all along the 20th century has required strong innovation in various field like biology, chemistry, genomics leading to some concerns 50 years later in biodiversity, farmer’s health, soils and rivers pollution. In the 21st century, Agro-industry will have to continue to produce more and better with less chemicals while new arable land will remain scarce and water resources under stress.
IT Solution can help to improve global yield with tighter management of data in plant health and quality monitoring and breeding, and also from reduction of food waste all along the supply chain.
This webinar will focus on new advanced calibrated sensors like hyperspectral VNIR/SWIR, LIDAR, thermal imaging, process Spectroscopy in food transformation and food packaging. It will present new products e.g. in imaging (4D, Hyperspectral ), Spectroscopy, lighting as well as enabling photonics technologies for these new products.
Jacques has run more than 100 marketing and technological studies for photonics companies, photonics clusters and R&D laboratories. He has published articles in various journals (Optik und Photonik, Biophotonics, Photonics Spectra, LaserFocus World, revue Photonique).
He published in 2017 for Photonics France (association gathering 140 French photonics companies) a roadmap about Photonics technologies already used or potentially useful in agriculture and agro industry.
Since 2018, Jacques is chairman of the AgroPhotonics Group in Photonics France to continue to develop the interaction between Agro end-users and members of Photonics France.
