For the first time Photonics Finland and PhotonicSweden are collaborating in arranging a joint Nordic Workgroup Meeting between our countries equivalent to Photonic21 workgroups WG1-WG7 on May 29th, 16:00 to 19:00, at Radisson Blu hotel in Oulu, the day before the conference OPD2017 starts.

Attending is Free of Charge – Please click here to: Register


The preliminary topics will be based on:

  • Why do we need workgroups?

  • Presentation of participants (short pitch talks),

  • Photonics21 stakeholders to talk about coming next 3 years calls,

  • Discussions about workgroups impact on Photonics post 2020,

  • Nordic collaboration in future calls

  • Nordic B2B possibilities

  • Etc….

Even though each WG might not be fully occupied, all WG’s will discuss in a round table arrangement. We believe this meeting is a good way to collaborate in Photonics between our Nordic countries! Our Workgroup arrangements are the same as Photonics21’s, so please read more about Workgroups here:
