The Final Report of the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies 2015 (IYL 2015) will be delivered to UNESCO leadership at a special half-day event to be held at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France, on Monday 3 October 2016.
The IYL 2015 has been a tremendously successful global initiative with thousands of events reaching millions of people worldwide. United by the interdisciplinary theme of light, IYL 2015 has brought together a diverse range of participants along with UNESCO, all committed to raising awareness of how light science and technology provide solutions to the many challenges facing the world today.
The event will consist of an overview summarizing key facts and figures of the International Year, followed by a series of short speeches from a selection of IYL 2015 partners. Finally, the IYL 2015 Final Report will be officially delivered to the UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Natural Sciences Flavia Schlegel. For more information, see the programme below.
