PREIN and Photonics Finland present another webinar event to the series “Photonics for X”. When “Photonics for All” introduced optics manufacturing available in Finland, “Photonics start from design” takes us one step backward to the start of any R&D project. This webinar is where the optical design industry meets photonics via researchers and experts, a place where challenges will be addressed and discussed.

The webinar event is co-organized by the Institute of Photonics, UEF; Photonics Center; PREIN flagship; Photonics Finland; and will be hosted by Professor Jyrki Saarinen from PREIN, University of Eastern Finland. There will be great speakers such as Professor Emeritus Folke Stenman from the University of Helsinki, and Optoplus Co.; Professor Pasi Vahimaa from the University of Eastern Finland (UEF); Dr. Oliver Fähnle from the Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Science and PanDao; and M.S. Aki Mäyrä from  VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.

The webinar will take place on the International Day of Light for 2022 which will be Monday, May 16th, 2022. Please save the date!

The event will be free of charge and requires registration. Please be sure to register before Monday, May 9th, 2022. Kindly visit the following link for registration. https://forms.office.com/r/J21ZAGPXua.
