TITLE: Terahertz Photonics for Communications, Space, Security, Radio-Astronomy, and Material Science
DURATION: With a duration of 4 years, TERAOPTICS starts the 1st of September 2020 and will conclude on the 31st of August 2024.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION: TERAOPTICS is a European Training Network (ETN) that is receiving 4 Mio. € funding from the European Union within the Marie Sklodowska-Curie programme of the Horizon 2020 framework. TERAOPTICS will enable the next generation of photonic driven THz technology and train the next generation of researchers in this key technology area (https://teraoptics.eu/).
ABSTRACT: The overarching objective of TERAOPTICS is to provide high-level training in the field of THz Photonics to a new generation of high achieving early stage researchers to provide them an inspiring research program and intellectual, scientific, technical and transferable skills trainings to enhance their career opportunities in academia and industry and to create the new generation of excellent, creative and risk-taking researchers and engineers. This goal will be achieved by a unique, internationally renowned, interdisciplinary and inter-sectorial network of academic and non-academic beneficiaries and partners providing both formal (workshop-style) and informal (hands-on) research training in a most stimulating professional environment, non-academic placements and scientific conferences.
