On the 1st and 2nd October, Agnieszka Tadrzak, Patrycja Nitoń, Monika Kuczyńska-Wydorska took part in the MSCA 2018 - Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Annual Conference organized in Vienna, under the Austrian EU Presidency. The aim of the conference was to discuss strategic objectives in the EU research and education policy areas. This two-day conference was divided into: lectures, panel discussions and workshops.
The purpose of the trip was to participate in “Laser Technology Symposium 2018” conference. The conference was devoted to the latest results in laser physics and technology developments, as well as to lasers’ applications: in spectroscopy, medicine, military and scientific uses. Jakub Bogusławski presented a talk entitled “Active mode-locking using graphene modulators”.
The aim of this visit was to participate in the 159th seminar of the International Center of Biocybernetics: Optics in Neuromonitoring, where Dawid Borycki delivered the talk entitled as: Monitoring time-of-flight-resolved temporal dynamics of optical field using interferometric near-infrared spectroscopy (iNIRS).
The goal of the Speckle2018 conference was to discuss and exchange ideas between scientists, engineers, and students dealing with speckle metrology and related techniques. This three-day conference consisted of high-level presentations from scientist from across Europe, America, and Asia, was an excellent platform and opportunity to interact with various optics specialist and have discussions.
The main goal of the reported trip was a study visit to the Optical Biomedical Engineering Laboratory at the University of Western Australia. Karol Karnowski met there with prof. Barry Cense (local group supervisor) and attended OBEL group meetings.
On the 22 – 23 February, 2018 Prof. dr. Jochen Blumberger, from the Department of Physics and Astronomy, University College London, UK came to IPC. Prof. Blumberger delivered seminar composed of 2 parts:
- “Inorganic Interfaces, Organic Materials and Energy Converting Enzymes: The Power of Computational Chemistry”,
- “The Art of Leading a Research Group”
All researchers and PhD students employed at IPC were invited to participate in this seminar – the seminar was attended by approx. 70 people.
On the 17th of Sept., 2019 the Polish National Contact Point organized in Warsaw the training "Twinning and ERA Chairs for the advanced". On this occasion, Agnieszka Tadrzak, the CREATE project manager, had the pleasure to share experience on proposal preparation, the course of CREATE project and its major results. The event also gave the opportunity to promote this granting scheme, the CREATE project and our ERA Chair holder - prof. Wojtkowski.
Dawid Borycki participated in the Microsoft Build 2018 conference. The aim of this visit was to learn about new software technologies used in Professor Wojtkowski lab. Dawid was particularly interested in the artificial intelligence for computer vision and the intelligent edge.
Julia Sudyka participated in the EGAS'50 (The European Group on Atomic Systems) conference that took place in Krakow. The conference topics are atomic, molecular, and optical physics. She presented a poster entitled “Optically induced Bloch-Siegert shift in magneto-optical resonances".
A new issue of NCP_WIDE.NET Bulletin, which is an official bulletin of a network of National Contact Points, has just arrived. Inside (p. 11) there is a 4-pages article on the CREATE project.
"ERA Chairs: where innovation is CREATED" written by Agnieszka Tadrzak, CREATE Project Manager, explains the foreground of the project, describes research profile of the acquired ERA Chair holder - Professor Maciej Wojtkowski, and his contribution to closing excellence gap between the Institute of Physical Chemistry, PAS and the European Research Area. It also explains research conducted by Professor Wojtkowski and his team in popular science language. In particular, it shows potential impact of this research on health of Europeans - i.e. possibilty to elaborate new therapies against various visual dysfunctions, including age-related.
