Popular Photonics Master of Science -program's course Applications of Photonics at the University of Eastern Finland will be held this year as a series of hybrid lectures hosted by Professor Jyrki Saarinen on Joensuu campus and online in Microsoft Teams. The course is organized in collaboration with PREIN flagship and Photonics Finland.

Applications of Photonics -lectures focus on practical applications of photonics from an industrial point of view. Key professionals from various companies give presentations regarding their businesses, technologies & applications in 30-minute lectures, and participants can discuss the themes further in the following 15-minute Q&A sessions. A total of 22 companies are invited, each from a distinct sub field of photonics. The lectures are also included in the Month of Photonics, PSRS Industrial Days and IMLEX Days.

The lectures will be given in English, and streamed online via Microsoft Teams. Participation on lectures is free and open for everyone, though mandatory for students taking the course.
