Photonics industry association EPIC has launched the "EPIC Travel Grant" to financially support (up to €250 per head) a limited number of students wishing to travel to an industrial conference supported by EPIC, including the likes of Laser World of Photonics India (8-10 October), Photonex UK (15-16 October) and Optics and Photonics Sweden (11-12 November). The full list of supported events is here.

Carlos Lee, EPIC's Director General, commented, "As industrial association, we want to promote the idea that academic research should be closer to industrial needs. After the trip, the student would be expected to produce a report on what he or she found most interesting from a technology or business perspective.

"The grants will be allocated on a first come-first served basis to students from an organization member of EPIC. No two students will be granted for the same event, and we favour international and topical variety."

EPIC is a photonics industry association that promotes sustainable development of organisations working in the field in Europe. EPIC publishes market and technology reports, organizes technical workshops and B2B roundtables, coordinates EU funding proposals, advocacy and lobbying, education and training activities, standards and roadmaps, pavilions at exhibitions.

The 2014 EPIC Travel Grant is sponsored by Edmund Optics, a manufacturer and distributor of precision optics, optical assemblies and image processing components with headquarters in the USA and manufacturing facilities in the U.S. and Asia.
