Photonics Days 2020
Fraunhofer IOF in cooperation with the Max Planck School of Photonics
From September 21 to 22, 2020, we will welcome students and doctoral candidates to our annual Photonics Days.
Be part of a varied career and networking event – this year completely virtual and accessible from all over the world.
Develop professional and personal connections and network with representatives from the optics and photonics industry. Chat with them in a casual atmosphere, ask questions, get advice on your CVs, learn more about their career paths from, and discover current job offers in optics and photonics in virtual company rooms.
Meet like-minded people during virtual coffee and lunch breaks, exchange ideas, explore new exciting research interests, or be active yourself and develop solutions on your own at the Lichtwerkstatt-Makeathon.
We look forward to having you!
Photonics Days in Jena
Attracting young talents to optics and photonics
Optics and photonics are indispensable for the future. As key technologies, they contribute to solutions of current and future challenges of mankind. Their potential is rated very highly, especially for digitization.
Young scientists are needed to advance innovations and developments in the optics and photonics industry. For this reason, the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF, in cooperation with the Max Planck School of Photonics, organizes the annual Photonics Days as a networking and career event.
Bridging the gap between young scientists and companies
At the Photonics Days, students and doctoral candidates have the opportunity to network face-to-face with representatives of renowned photonics organizations. Even before graduating, students and doctoral candidates can gain perspectives for their own career paths, receive personal advice and develop meaningful connections.
The Photonics Days were created as a networking event to address the needs of the next generation as well as the optics and photonics industry: Young scientists are sensitized to the knowledge and skills that are advantageous when applying for jobs. Representatives can present their companies and create a tangible experience for young scientists that enables a connection between academia and professional development in the future.
What our participants say
The career fair was quite informative and useful to gain insights, among networking with industry.
