EPFL Photonics Day 2023

The Photonics Day took place in the Forum Rolex Learning Center at EPFL on October 30. This yearly event is organized by the Doctoral School in Photonics of EPFL with the collaboration of the EPFL Photonics Chapter (EPC).

You may remember last year’s event which was organised with the support of the European Commission through the CARLA EU project and was a two-day event to promote careers in Photonics.
