Workshop ”Aligning Education with Innovation”

The RespiceSME consortium invites you to join the workshop “Aligning Education with Innovation” on the 28th of June 2017 from 13:00-18:00 at the Laser World of Photonics Congress in Munich (

The RespiceSME workshop will focus on ‘Best Practices’ examples of knowledge exchange relating on various forms of interactions between universities/institutes and the industry. The goal is also to analyse the challenges for improving the curricula of photonics courses and therewith, the educational offer in photonics (and related subjects) for students. Furthermore, it will be discussed and shown what tools and measures can be used in order to better scope the requirements of the industry (in particular SMEs) for improving and updating the curricula of physics / photonics courses.

WHY to participate?
The workshop is dedicated to:

- Representatives of the industry
- Innovation experts from academia
- Representatives from EU educational institutions
- Students

Are you interested in participating? Please check the programme of the event and register until the 20th of June at the latest under the link below!

Registration is free of charge!! Please register until the 20th of June at the latest!

In order to trigger the interaction between SMEs and students, an informal ‘get together’ and a matchmaking session for jobs seekers will take place after the presentations. SMEs and students will meet to find or offer internships and jobs opportunities.

We look forward to receiving your job/internship offers (download here) and to welcoming you to our event.
