A brighter, lighter and healthier world
Home » Mission » Outreach


Cultivating the next generation of engineers is important. We have created an array of activities and opportunities to fascinate young and old in the science and technology of light.

B-Phot targets in particular young and enthusiastic students to encourage them to pursue a fantastic and rewarding career; as a photonics researcher, an engineer, an entrepreneur.

Outreach activities include photonics science shows, attractive exhibits on light-lasers-and-photonics for the entire family and the development of professional photonics educational kits for secundary schools.

B-PHOT cooperates with EYESTvzw for STEM-projects in Photonics
