Taking place in Munich between the 27th-29th June, Laser World of Photonics is the leading international trade fair for photonics, featuring a unique combination of research, innovative technology and industrial application sectors.

At this year’s Laser World of Photonics trade fair in Munich the RespiceSME consortium is hosting 3 events, offering the opportunity to meet and exchange views with players of the photonics sector.

Join the RespiceSME’s partners to discuss photonics innovations and educational programmes during the workshop for aligning education with innovation on 28th June, to learn more about photonics applications in the automotive sector at the Photonics Inter-cluster Meeting on 29th June and to network and boost collaborations with other stakeholders during the RespiceSME’s brokerage sessions (27th Р29th June).

Further details of the 3 events are below:

1. Workshop “Aligning Education with Innovation”: 28 June, 13:00 to 18:00.

The workshop will focus on how to trigger innovation in photonics through improving the curricula of photonics courses in higher education. In order to support the interaction between SMEs and students, an informal ‘get together’ and a matchmaking session for jobs seekers will take place after the presentations. SMEs and students will meet to find or offer internships and jobs opportunities.

2. Photonics Inter-Cluster Meeting on “Boosting the Collaboration of Photonics SMEs in Automotive”: 29 June,  13:00 to 18:00.

This cluster meeting will go beyond the usual cluster gatherings, inviting both, cluster representatives and SMEs, to exchange views on strengthening the innovation potential of photonics SMEs. Renowned multinationals and SMEs will share their experiences in the automotive sector and present success stories of photonics solutions in LIDAR and connected car technologies.

3. Brokerage sessions for the Photonics community: 27 – 29 June

SMEs, Photonics clusters, RTOs, Academia and experts are invited to sign up to partake in brokerage throughout the trade show.
