“Baltic Photonics 2021 MedLife” is a virtual B2B (business to business) event, which focuses on medical life sciences with the aim to promote Baltic photonics and laser technologies, life science and medical research and innovations, to present them to the potential end-users and partners and to stimulate cross-sectoral cooperation in Northern Europe.

“Baltic Photonics” is the annual platform that brings together the photonics technology experts and leaders to discuss technology developments, applications, and challenges as well as attracts representatives of cross-sectorial industries to discuss key challenges and needs.

Date: 16 September, 2021

Location: virtual platform (registered participants will receive a link close to the event date)

Register until 14 of September. Registration is free of charge.

Preliminary program (EEST time):

16 September, 2021

10:00 – 10:50 Opening

10:00-10:20 Horizon Europe. Opportunities for Photonics
Brigita Serafinavičiūtė, Head of the Lithuanian RDI Liaison Office LINO (LT)

Horizon Europe is the EU’s key funding programme for research and innovation with a budget of €95.5 billion. Through competitive calls it tackles climate change, helps to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and boosts the EU’s competitiveness and growth. Photonics can be instrumental in many of these challenges, but this requires collaboration and active engagement with various sectors.
