The team creating the first organ of Candela consists of young people who know the realities of the development of optics and photonics in Poland. We know that there are many ambitious projects, which face similar problems during their implementation. We realize that it is thanks to young people who still believe “it is possible” that projects and technologies of global importance are developed in Poland.
A great example can be a series of OPTO conferences, which began in 2005 and have become a brand recognized around the world. It is the oldest and so far only conference programme for young scientists, which has been organised continuously for 15 years.
There are many more such projects and people. Our dream is to make Candela a partner for them, thanks to which the reality will become clearly more pleasant and the realization of their ambitious projects will simply be possible. Within the framework of Candela’s numerous programs we plan to support first of all students, PhD students, young doctors and young people working in companies and research units. We will also support student-doctoral organizations and other initiatives of research and development units.
