Everyone is so busy, has so little time and there is LIGHT NIGHT crossing your path. SPIE Student Chapter went out of their way to give this edition a special touch celebrating their 10th anniversary. A few months before LIGHT NIGHT, SPIE Student Chapter Brussels and B-PHOT gathered to answer questions on what inspires students and professionals in high-tech and engineering nowadays. What is happening in photonics land, a specific topic involved future challenges, and how to tackle them through the right education? A good start, but let’s share 5 reasons to join us on Thursday 27 April at Vrije Universiteit Brussel!
Photonics21, the European Technology Platform representing industry and research in photonics, distinguishes students for their important contributions in Photonics Research & Innovation with industrial impact. This year, Dr. Ir. Lien Smeesters, alumni from the European Master of Science in Photonics and now post-doc researcher at VUB B-PHOT, is honoured with the European Innovation Award 2017 during the annual meeting of Photonics21.
The 2017 OSA Optical Design and Fabrication Congress will address recent advances in three sub-conferences on Optical Design, Optical Fabrication and Testing, and Freeform Optics.
To get a closer look at what industrial photonics looks like, the SPIE Student Chapter at VUB took its members for a company visit to ETAP Lighting in Antwerp (BE) and a tour in the Philips Museum in Eindhoven (NL).
