Connecting Talents Across Generations
Will the twenty-first century be the age of optics? Researchers will discuss this and other questions in an interdisciplinary and intergenerational context in Hannover. Initiated by Leibniz University Hannover, the new networking event will be held every two years focusing on a different topic each time. Under the slogan “Connecting Talents Across Generations” the event brings together Alexander von Humboldt award winners and young researchers from Germany and abroad. The programme encourages interaction and includes scientific forums as well as opportunities for sharing experiences, networking and discussing topics relevant to career development.
The event in 2022 will address current research questions in Optics and Photonics. Over the past years, Hannover evolved into one of the most important science locations in the field of Optical Technologies and Gravitational Physics. In 2015, laser technology developed in Hannover enabled researchers to detect gravitational waves. With the Clusters of Excellence PhoenixD and QuantumFrontiers, Leibniz University Hannover stands for cutting-edge research and innovation.
