Over 40 leading members of the UK photonics community joined the remote ZOOM PLG meeting on the 3 June. The resilience of UK photonics was very much in evidence with 90% of the industry able to safely continue production through the Covid pandemic. The PLG is now calling on University labs to follow industry’s lead and prioritise resumption of photonics research activities.
A lively discussion on how photonics will improve national readiness, and capability post pandemic elucidated how photonics will be critical to improving public confidence, supporting dedensification and enhancing economic resilience.
Minutes of the meeting are available to regular PLG participants. Please contact the PLG to become involved.
