In WON we are aware of the importance of not only producing and presenting research outputs for the scientific community, but also engaging the general public in line with the H2020 objectives and guidelines.
While the WON programme remains highly technical, the wider public still will find aspects of interest in this research. The fact that the research topics impact directly on the day-to-day lives of people gives the research a relevance that allows WON to capture the interest and inspire younger students with an interest in engineering and photonics technologies.
Outreach activities, blogs and social media and other communications by WON researchers bring awareness to the public on the importance of photonics and motivate University students to pursue a research career.
