Our events

Event management

One of the main activities of the Candela Foundation is the organization of events that support and help the development of young scientists and provide an opportunity to present the results of locally conducted scientific research projects to an international community. The Foundation organizes scientific conferences, workshops, summer schools and webinars.


The Foundation uses its experience in organizing international scientific events also as part of its business activity, organizing conferences not directly related to optics and photonics. Such activities enable the Foundation to raise funds for its statutory activity, which directly supports the optics and photonics community in Poland.
