Progress on the global photonics education network
Author(s): Marc Nantel

Paper Abstract

Since ETOP 2001, the Global Photonics Education Network (GPEN) has slowly formed and built momentum. With its growing number of members, its list-serv email address and a new webpage, the GPEN is gathering the critical mass needed to become a useful tool for photonics educators worldwide. This paper will recap the evolution of the GPEN so far, present its current state (including the webpage), emphasize the role of "clusters" for its health and suggest the next steps to take to firmly establish it as an essential part of the photonics education and training community.
