On March 22-23, the Czech-Polish Photonics 2023 workshop was held in Ostrava, where representatives of the Czech Optical Cluster and the Polish Photonics Technology Platform met.
The goal was to connect the Czech and Polish optical communities, and the goal was successfully fulfilled.

The manager of the Czech optical cluster, Petr Přikryl, evaluated the workshop: “The building of the optical ecosystem that we strive for in the Czech Republic is based on cooperation not only within the Czech Republic, but our activities extend abroad. It is the development of cooperation with foreign optical clusters that can strengthen our scientific research and business activities. I am very glad that we had the opportunity to meet our Polish colleagues in person. Optics in both the Czech Republic and Poland is a strong hi-tech industry and there is an interesting potential for cooperation.”
Connecting optical communities will continue on April 19-20, 2023 in Velké Pavlovice, where the Czech-Austrian photonics workshop will be held.
