#create: Get active - with Makeathon, workshops and roundtable discussion with Nobel Prize winner Prof. Genzel
According to the motto #create, a varied program awaits participants on the first day of the event. The motto is: Get active and participate! Pitch training is on the agenda, as well as a workshop on visualizing scientific data. Various lectures will also discuss photonic future markets, including biophotonics, the latest quantum technologies, and EUV lithography. This way, attractive fields of work and research of the future will be presented to students. A Makeathon, meanwhile, invites them to get creative together and implement a small tech project across virtual and national borders. (Please note: Due to internal preparations, registration for the Makeathon is already required until August 15.)
A special highlight will be the keynote "A 40-Year Journey" by Prof. Dr. Reinhard Genzel followed by a talk. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the 2020 Nobel Prize winner in Physics. The keynote takes place in cooperation with the "Noble Talk", organized by Beutenberg-Campus Jena e.V.
The presentation of the "Applied Photonics Award", Fraunhofer IOF's young talent award for innovative final theses, as well as a virtual evening program with electronic music and cocktails will round off the first day of the event in an atmospheric way.
