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]



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]
