Optomechatronics Symposium 2023 March 30

This symposium is intended for engineers and architects participating in or interested in the design and building of optical hardware. It is a great moment to network, to meet technical peers, and to visit the expo.

The event takes into account innovations, latest developments in optomechatronics, and practical insights for engineers and designers.

Earlier editions of this DSPE symposium were held in Delft (2015), Aachen (2017), and Eindhoven (2019). Symposium partners are Mikrocentrum and the German photonics cluster Optence.

Target group:

Engineers and architects strongly related to design and building of optical hardware.


Innovation, latest developments in optomechatronics shall be of practical use for engineers and designers. Design process from physics to practical solution/product.


Investment €195,00 excl VAT. Members of DSPE, Mikrocentrum and Optence €175,00 excl VAT, PHD €75 excl VAT.


Mikrocentrum, De Run 1115, Veldhoven.
