Optopubs are seminars organised by PhotonicSweden and the Swedish Optical Society in presently three cities in Sweden, Stockholm, Lund and Gothenburg. The basic setup consists of a seminar during one hour with usually two speakers from 5.30 pm to 6.30 pm followed by a light dinner and of course some beers! Opotpubs are a perfect occasion to discuss new technologies, mingle and have an exchange between players with many different backgrounds. It can help student find their future employer and help starting new collaborations.
The Work Groups of PhotonicSweden have been meeting intensively when we were developing the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) in 2012 and 2013. We gathered more than 100 participants in the seven work groups. After that, there has been some sporadic meetings but it is obvious that we should strive after giving a new life to these discussions extremely useful to develop the Swedish strategies in photonics. The work groups are specifically addressing either a particular application area (ICT, industry, life science, lighting and displays, safety and security) or cross-cutting thematics (components and systems, education and resarch).
The Annual General Meeting will take place at the latest in June.
The association’s financial year is the calendar year.
Invitation to the meeting shall be made in writing by letter or e-mail earlier than four (4) and the last two (2) weeks before the Annual General Meeting and no later than one (1) week prior to the extraordinary general meeting.
