We are happy to announce that on February 25, 2021, a new foundation to support young people in optics and photonics was registered in the National Court Register – Candela.
It’s created by alumni, employees and PhD students of the Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw. On a daily basis, they work with the development of retinal imaging methods, create new photonic structures and build systems for the Quantum Key Distribution (QKD). This year, they decided to join forces and use the experience they gained to support young people who want to develop optics and photonics in Poland; just like them.
As they indicate, the most important ideas behind their activities will be transparency, communication, support for young people, inclusiveness, openness, flexibility and efficiency.
