Activities

Knowledge Management

Knowledge Management

Knowledge management is one of the core activities of Photonics4Life especially due to the strong interdependence of the different subdisciplines of Biophotonics. The objectives of the knowledge management centre are to enable, facilitate and stimulate information sharing, networking and e-collaboration [more]


Bridging the Gap

Bridging the Gap

Communication barriers between the different disciplines working in Biophotonics are the main hurdle for better health care applications and methods.The main goal of the network is therefore to improve the connection to the biomedical end-user (biologists and physicians) to break down these barriers. [more]


International Contacts

International Contacts

The importance of Biophotonics has been realized all over the world. Typical of the field is its strong dynamics rendering the knowledge of international developments inside and outside of Europe in their earliest stages of utmost importance. [more]


Ethics

Ethics

Regulatory and ethical issues are substantially important points that have to be considered at all stages of development especially when new tools and technologies arrive at the stage of clinical testing [more]


Gender issues

Gender issues

Participants in PHOTONICS4LIFE are committed to promote equality of opportunity in all stages of P4L activities. Therefore, rules for equal treatment of men and women in all stages of P4L have been established, ranging from recruitment to training. [more]

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
