April 2021 BPC newsletter gives an overview about the latest developments of the cluster and its members, giving some reflection on the need to change priorities after a decade in a changing environment.
The multitude of interesting developments in the Baltic Photonics Cluster companies have been presented in the newsletter for the past two quarters.
A few weeks later than usual, but the 3rd quarterly newsletter of the Baltic Photonics Cluster in now online in this website. The newsletter focuses on the Baltic Photonics event in Vilnius.
The 2nd Baltic Photonics business-to-business meeting took place from the 8th to 10th of October in Visoriai Information Technology Park (VITP), Vilnius. The format of the event gives each participant a chance to present their collaboration needs and capabilities and leaves enough time and freedom to have effective business-to-business meetings after the main program. More than 50 participants from ~10 countries clearly indicate that such format is suitable and interesting for not only Baltic photonics stakeholders, but also for companies from surrounding area.
The event was organized in the largest part by VITP and has clearly fulfilled its role as a great place to establish firm business to business contacts which are useful for the Lithuanian and Baltic photonics ecosystem.

The Nordic branch of Hamamatsu Photonics has joined the Baltic Photonics Cluster as the 24th member. Although based in Kista, Sweden, the company Hamamatsu Photonics Norden AB is active in the Baltic States (in addition to Nordic countries, Russia and CIS) and is the first non-Baltic member to join the cluster. BPC welcomes its newest member Hamamatsu Photonics!!!
