The workshop “Women in Photonics“ aims at connecting excellent female scientists at the beginning of their career with experts in photonics holding leading positions at research institutions and companies.
The focus of the workshop will be on:
The workshop addresses female postdocs and PhD students working in these research areas, who want to present their own 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.
USE THE CHANCE TO:
Present and get feedback on your research
Learn about career opportunities in Photonics
Connect with companies and institutions
Extend your network
Discuss with experienced female scientists
Attend various career workshops
Register free of charge

At the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena, scientists use light to find solutions to questions and urgent problems in the fields of health, environment, medicine and safety. Under the motto “Photonics for Life”, they research light-based technologies that make our lives safer, healthier and cleaner. Especially in the field of optical health technologies, Leibniz IPHT, in cooperation with partners from research and industry, is specifically promoting translation: the transfer of research results into applicable solutions – from Ideas to Instruments.

The workshop was a wonderful example of industries, universities and disciplinary societies working together to support underrepresented groups. The opportunity for these women to connect with each other, and share their biophotonics expertise was invaluable.
I am very convinced that the young scientists who took part in the event will use the experience from this event in their own professional life and I am sure they learned a lot both for their professional and personal life.
