As members of the SPIE and OSA student chapter, we would like to introduce ourselves and the activities we have planned for the upcoming year that might interest you or students at your lab.


The optical society (OSA) and international society of optics and photonics (SPIE) provide funding for young researchers who have an interest in the broad field of optics ranging from material sciences to the use of advanced microscopy techniques in life sciences. By providing funding to our KU Leuven chapter, we are able to organize scientific, professional development, social and youth outreach events throughout the year.

About one activity per month is organised, ranging from small lunch meetings (free lunch for members, €5 for non-members) to a professional development day, reaching hundreds of people. If you want to be updated on our new activities, please visit our “become a member”-page for all information.
