Photonics for All webinar

April 14, 2021 @ 08:00 17:00

Finland has a lot of expertise for optical design, testing and manufacturing from 3D-printed optics, fiber optics, glass molding, optics film, optics welding and precision engineering. There are a lot of needs for optical expertise in Finnish industry but potential available is still quite unknown in Finland.

Photonics for All webinar is a full day event that collects all the Finnish optical experts together to show and discuss about the future opportunities for providing the gutting edge service and of course to network.

The event will be organized 14th April 2021 from 08.00 – 17.00 (EET) as a Zoom-webinar. Link will be sent to the registered quests 13th April.

Program – facilitated by the Photonics Finland and photonics flagship programme PREIN.
