Online session | August 03, 2021


In our Expert-Sessions we would like to show what is possible with glass in the field of photonic packaging and how you can still use the possibilities for your industry or for us together in joint projects. Due to the corona pandemic, we have been looking for a virtual space to get in conversation on this subject to each other.


Berlin Center for Digital Transformation

The Berlin Center for Digital Tansformation is a cooperation of the four Berlin Fraunhofer-Institutes FOKUS, HHI, IPK and IZM.

The focus activities are technologies and solutions that take into account the increasing digitalization and networking of all spheres of life.
