Knowledge Exchange and Training

By participating in congresses, active training sessions, workshops, and institute tours, we are in constant exchange with a wide range of stakeholders and experts, thus contributing to the formation of public opinion.

Our events show which trends have potential in a compact and practical way. Participants learn methods and strategies that have proven themselves in practice and concepts that will become relevant in the future.

We are happy to inform you about our current workshops, conferences, and other events with our newsletter.

Supplement your Skills with Trainings and Courses about Photonics and Optics

 

Our training and courses are specifically designed to benefit members of the Photonic Industry involved in manufacturing processes. This includes engineers, technical sales professionals, research and development teams, and managers.

The courses are tailored to equip attendees with the necessary skills and knowledge to address the challenges faced in company processes as well as the circumspect knowledge behind the science. By enrolling in these courses, you will enhance your understanding of laser technology and its various applications, and learn about the latest advancements in quantum research, and further your knowledge about numerous possibilities within modern optics.

The skills gained from these courses can help companies improve their production efficiency, reduce manufacturing costs, and stay ahead of the competition in their respective markets.

Upcoming Courses: Online or In-Person
