9 February 2022: Online Event on Nano-Photonics in the Netherlands

Invitation for Japanese Audience
Part of bilateral relation building for Quantum-Photonics-Nano

The rapid digital transition requires radical high-tech solutions to keep the global social systems running in terms of security, sustainability, economy, health and others. Important parts of these solutions lie in the area of quantum technology, photonics and nanotechnology. The Netherlands and Japan are forefront runners, both in terms of contents and in terms of industry-academia collaboration.

As follow-up of the Netherlands-Japan Launch Event on Quantum-Photonics-Nano that we organized last July 8, we kindly invite you to an online event on Nano-Photonics on Wednesday 9 February 2022. You will be updated on recent nano-photonics developments and ambitions of the Netherlands, by renowned speakers including Mr. Eric van Oorschot, Ecosystem Manager of Photon Delta NL, and companies of the Dutch Public-Private PIB-Nano Cluster that is successfully active in building relations with Japan since 2018. Prof. Kazuhiko Hirakawa of The University of Tokyo will give opening remarks.

The event is part of a series of bilateral events, with the purpose to deepen mutual understanding of strengths and ambitions in The Netherlands and Japan in the fields of Quantum-Photonics-Nanotechnology. Both countries have ambitions to strengthen their relations in these fields. To address the crossovers, we invite professionals from these three areas to all the events. The series of events paves the way to a (hopefully) physical Innovation Mission in 2022.
