The London Institute for Advanced Light Technologies is a multidisciplinary research network which brings together scientists and industries in London who work on emerging photonic technologies.  On the 16th January we held a sold out showcase at King’s College London with approximately 70 attendees.

Bringing together leaders from industry, researchers and academic staff from Imperial College London, King’s College London and University College London, this event highlighted the many opportunities for a career in the expanding multidisciplinary field of photonics. Dr Valerie Berryman-Bousquet (R&D Manager, Sharp UK) and Dr Nina Meinzer (Senior Editor, Nature Communications) gave interesting talks about career paths. The talks were followed by a networking event.
