30 January 2018 ICFO Alumni Network in SFO

Alumni Event in SFO

Alumni get-together during Photonics West 2018 On January 29, the Alumni Network gathered once again during the Photonics West conference in San Francisco in a get-together that aimed to strengthen relationships between ICFO Alumni and current ICFOnians. This was the third Alumni Drinks event around a major industry conference, following the success of the events at CLEO Europe in June 2017 and the first event at Photonics West 2017.

Current ICFOnians, including ICFO professors Frank Koppens, Jordi Martorell and Romain Quidant, and alumni, both residents from the San Francisco area as well as from other parts of the globe, attended the event. In a relaxed ambience, they shared experiences, anecdotes, got to see old friends as well as meet new people that have joined the network. The organisation of the event was possible thanks to the efforts of Armand Niederberger, honorary alumni representative of the ICFO Alumni Network.

The ICFO Alumni Network aims to provide a platform that allows ICFOnians to continue to network both socially and professionally even after their careers have taken them away from the institute. By maintaining, the relationships built at ICFO, both alumni and the institute are able to strengthen the reach of their work by drawing on the resources of the network.

ICFOnians live, work and travel to all corners of the globe, and notably attend conferences for experts in the field. The Alumni Network is actively reaching out to all Alumni to ensure that all are aware of these opportunities to stay in touch.
