Photonics is a strongly growing sector of the economy and a major research area in Europe. In Thuringia and in particular in Jena, the scientific and industrial location is shaped by universities, research institutes and companies in the field of optics and photonics. While the number of young, well-trained female graduates is high, women who hold a leading position
in academia and high-tech industry are still underrepresented.
The workshop “Women in Photonics“ aims to connect
excellent female scientists at the beginning of their career with experts in photonics holding leading positions at research institutions and companies. The event addresses young female postdocs in the field of (bio)photonics, who
want to present their own research work and build up new networks. Participants will have the opportunity to exchange with experienced scientists from academia and industry and jointly develop strategies for a successful professional career.
