The Photonics21 Annual Meeting 2015 entitled Photonics solutions for the European society will be the community event highlighting the new Photonics Public Private Partnership in Europe. Günther Oettinger, Commissioner for the Digital Economy & Society, has been invited to provide the keynote speech.

Photonics21 will share the PPP activities of the first year and kick start a process with the European Commission and community representatives from the Societal Challenges Programme of Horizon2020 to determine common areas of interest in Research and Innovation.

  • Session 1: Photonics for smart cities and buildings
  • Session 2: Photonics for the secure society
  • Session 3: Photonics for resource-efficiency and green transport
  • Session 4: Photonics for health and food security
