Erasmus Mundus Master Program EUROPHOTONICS-POESII. Aix-Marseille

The field of optics / photonics, the science of light, is booming and involves a large number of interdisciplinary activities in health, environment, energy, transport, telecommunication with significant economic and societal benefits. Optics / photonics play’s a key role in fundamental discoveries and in new technologies, with theoretical and experimental aspects. Photonics is considered by the European Commission as one of the “Key Enabling Technologies (KET)” which is increasingly driving innovation today and will continue to drive innovation in the future.
