ABOUT US

At ICFO, Outreach is one of our priority missions.  The Outreach team combines scientific background and a multidisciplinary approach and format to create a large portfolio of programs and activities that target audiences in all areas of society. ICFO’s Outreach activities aim to inspire students, teachers, fellow scientists, the general public and industry at large, demonstrating the power of light as a tool for research, technology, industry and society.  The main goal of ICFO’s Outreach Program is to promote the potential, pervasiveness and ubiquity of the science and technology of light and its industrial applications.
