International Year of Light 2015

CIM-Laser was closely engaged in supporting events throughout the International Year of Light – 2015, recognising the importance of raising global awareness about how light-based technologies promote sustainable development and provide solutions to global challenges in energy, education, agriculture and health.

This including engagement in the Scottish Launch Event in February 2015 at the Royal Society of Edinburgh as well as contributing to multiple Public Lectures, Workshops and Events throughout the year.  The culmination was the closing Ceremony (hosted by Heriot Watt University) with exhibitions, photo competitions and other school children’s events, and climaxed with a memorable lecture from the BBC presenter Prof Jim Al- Khalili – “A Brief History of Light” - and the final Light Show.
