International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL): an United Nations program in 2015
In 2015, the UNESCO had opened the "International Year of Light". The LASER World of PHOTONICS family supported this initiative as Gold Associate.
For 2015, the UNESCO had proclaimed the "International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies" (IYL).
On behalf of the LASER World of PHOTONICS, the international leading trade fair for the laser and photonics industry, and the World of Photonics Congress, we were very pleased to support this unique and amazing UNESCO-event.
The International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies (IYL 2015) was a global initiative that will highlight to the citizens of the world the importance of light and optical technologies in their lives, for their futures, and for the development of society.
