Invitation to participate

SPIE Photonics Europe is organised for the fifth time in Strasbourg's city conference facility, Palais de la Musique et des Congrès.

Photonics Europe is the place to be. It brings together different disciplines, technologies, and perspectives from across Europe and around the world. As a participant, you will be among the leaders who are presenting research, developing new contacts, and learning about the latest funding opportunities.

      •   Photonics Europe is conferences, workshops, seminars, and an exhibition that will combine into a dynamic learning environment.

      •   Photonics Europe has programmes and experts on new business development and bridges the gap between academia and industry.

      •   Photonics Europe serves as the platform for information updates on the European Union's new Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon Europe.

      •   Photonics Europe features a daily comprehensive Hot Topics session, and will include a unique welcome reception, daily coffee breaks, plus other technical and social events.

      •   Photonics Europe presents the Innovation Village, a window on creative products developed by universities and research centres.

      •   Photonics Europe hosts the European Projects/Networks, a display on European Research and Innovation Actions, Coordinate and Support Actions, and other EC-funded initiatives that showcase their consortium as well as their newest breakthroughs.

The casual atmosphere of historical Strasbourg set in the beautiful region of Alsace provides a backdrop of good food, comfortable facilities, and easy transportation. The leadership of Photonics Europe 2020 has selected many of the toughest issues facing optical and photonics technologies today as the basis for their programmes. These current research issues will drive the development of new products for years to come.

Present at Photonics Europe 2020 and be among the leaders!
