IONS Europe - Networking for Young Researchers in Optics & Photonics
The IONS-Project was officially launched in 2006 and has since been growing into an ever more worldwide activity. In the beginning, mainly European universities and research institutes were actively participating. Due to its enormous success and rate of growth, the IONS-Project was subdivided into regional IONS-Projects in 2009 with different chapters carrying on this dream on their respective continent.
The first conference at ICFO in Barcelona saw 15 optics students from 4 countries. Their number grew continuously during the next conferences at the Optoelectronics Research Centre ORC in Southampton, the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics MPQ in Munich and the University Frederico II in Naples. IONS-5 in Barcelona was already attended by over 60 optics students, pursueing their PhDs on two continents in 11 countries.
Become also a part of IONS, and meet fellow PhD students from around the world, exchange latest results, discuss science and educational outreach, network, and have fun at the next conference.
