Organic photonics as key-enabling technology in optical biosensors for food safety/quality: the MOLOKO project

23 March 2022 | 9:00-13:00 (TIME-CET)
ICM – Internationales Congress Center München, Conference Room Ostersee A+B+C
Munich, Germany

Participate to MOLOKO workshop: you will receive a free ticket for LOPEC 2022 on March 23rd, 2022.

The LOPEC Conference is the world’s biggest communication venue for research, expertise, and solutions in the printed electronics industry, with over 200 conference presentations. All presentations are peer-reviewed by an international panel of specialists, assuring topicality and cutting-edge knowledge.


The half-day workshop aims to trigger an exchange of information and ideas from different perspectives about organic photonics’ technology in optical biosensors for food safety and quality.

Among the new applications of electronics presented at Lopec Conference, Moloko desires to spread its knowledge through the explanation of the project, the description of the miniaturized integrated photonic sensor and the exposition of its improvement.
