Photonics for a Sustainable Environment

Photonics Finland, Photonics Austria and PREIN organise in cooperation  the webinar on Photonics for a Sustainable Environment on May 18 at 13:00-17:00
The workshop aims to start a conversation about how photonics drives sustainability.

Photonics enables high-tech solutions in many industries which contribute to protecting the environment and preserving resources. From reduced material consumption through to saving energy the impact of Photonics is evident. A recent study suggests that photonics applications have the potential to contribute to 3 billion tons less CO2 output already by 2030. In this webinar we will discuss global environmental challenges, the potential of photonics to solve those challenges and the potential, diversity, and capacity for innovation of photonics as an ‘enabler’ of sustainability. The webinar brings together all industries that are implementing sustainable practices and the photonics industry.

The event is free of charge and open for anyone interested. Please, register for the event by 16th of May
