2nd edition Intensive Training "Entrepreneurship in Photonics"

January 17, 2011 - January 28, 2011

More than ever it is of essential importance for our economy to innovate and generate new growth-oriented businesses. Photonics is a major enabling technology and driver for innovations in a wide range of domains. Its core technologies, such as lasers, light emitting diodes, vision, displays, fibre optic cable, photovoltaic cells… translate into a wide range of industrial and consumer applications, of which several show exponential growth at a global level.

In order to stimulate

 and support innovative entrepreneurship in the domains of photonics, the VUB organizes the second edition of its “Intensive Training on Entrepreneurship in Photonics”. This intensive course is targeted at researchers of universities and research institutes, young professionals, employees of photonics related companies, lawyers, business angels, consultants… active in the domain. In short: everybody who is involved with or interested in entrepreneurship in photonics.

It is a 2-week modular training course held in Brussels, starting on Monday, 17th January 2011, ending on Friday, 28th January 2011. The training adds to the already comprehensive expertise and educational program of VUB and is developed by the Business Economics Department (BEDR) and the Department of Photonics and Applied Physics (TONA/B-PHOT).
