WG7 – Photonics research, education and training

The versatility of photonics and its applications in medicine, the environment, and many other areas make it a pacemaker in industrial society. However, to be able to use the possibilities of photonics to its full potential, fostering a high standard in photonics research and education is needed. Photonics training requires interdisciplinary knowledge, and as a consequence, cooperation between different industries, academia, and funding agencies is a necessity.
