The idea of Photonics4all is to promote photonics using many tools to address young people (pupils and students), entrepreneurs (start-ups, PhD-students, academics and companies) and the general public. These tools will be developed and implemented into many promotional activities which will be conducted during the project.

The main goal is to sensitize and to arouse interest of the mentioned target groups for photonics technology in many European countries in order to achieve an EU-wide outreach. With an increased awareness and recognition of photonics, as well as their indispensable input in countless applications and their important role in many current technologies the outreach for promoting photonics to the mentioned target groups can be ensured.

Finally Photonics4all’s vision is to contribute to a condition in which the photonics term enjoys the same popularity and public awareness as it is the case for other technical sectors (e.g. electronics or mechanics).
