In so-cal­led Mas­ter tours, YOU will visit the com­pa­nies faci­li­ties, labo­ra­to­ries and get insights during pre­sen­ta­ti­ons and indi­vi­dual talks with CEOs, R&D and HR leaders.

You ask ques­ti­ons about pro­ducts and tech­no­lo­gies, learn more about the future issues that can be sol­ved with pho­to­nics, but also take a look into clean rooms, labo­ra­to­ries, offices and the com­pany canteen.
