  • Entrepreneurship in Photonics

At the summer school invited experts, at an international level, give extended presentations reviewing these areas. Moreover, the attendees at the summer school have the opportunity of presenting their current research projects, results or ideas.

Who should attend?

The school lectures spans areas ranging from basic research to applied technology and therefore students and post docs in both the technical and medical sciences are encouraged to attend this summer school.

The target group is primarily graduate students (PhD) and post-doctoral fellows within the main topics of the school, i.e., within the field of biomedical optics. Admission of a limited, small number of under-graduate students will be allowed.
