20 Oct 2006 - 05 Jun 2007
Nine scientists from different Ukrainian R&D institutes and two STCU Senior Specialists participated in NATO ASI Workshop “Optical Waveguide Sensing & Imaging in Medicine, Environment, Security and Defense” which included lectures, discussions, Technology Commercialization Workshop and poster session. The Workshop took place on October 12-21, 2006 in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada.
Technical presentations made by international recognized experts were focused on the latest research in biophotonics and its application in medicine, environmental investigations / applications and security.
Ukrainian scientists were particularly interested in Advanced Technology Commercialization workshop which provided an opportunity to focus their efforts on commercialization partnerships and business venture development activities. Members of STCU mission also made poster presentations and had lengthy face-to-face meetings with representatives of government laboratories, research centers and industry. They discussed research within their institutes in this rapidly evolving area of science.
