RADDESS Academy Programme Closing Seminar
The RADDESS Academy Programme organizes its Closing Seminar on 22 June 2022 at 9.45-19 as a hybrid event in Helsinki and online. Please find the programme of the Seminar below!
RADDESS (Radiation Detectors for Health, Safety and Security) Academy programme researches novel device-driven and functional radiation detection systems in areas of health and safety. The programme supports the creation of new technology that combines data from multiple sources.
The RADDESS Academy Programme Final seminar provides an excellent possibility to get an overview of the scientific results of the whole programme. Importantly, we will additionally have a keynote presentation by Heidi Ottevaere from Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). See below for more information about professor Ottevaere.
You’re warmly welcome to join the event at Sokos Hotel Tripla in Pasila, Helsinki or follow the event stream online. By attending the seminar physically in Helsinki, you will have a great opportunity to meet other researchers from universities and research institutes to discuss sensors, sensor physics and systems, electromagnetics, photonics and quantum physics. The seminar is free of charge.
The seminar is targeted primarily at researchers in the field of sensor-related physics, photonics, and electromagnetics and sensor systems. The seminar could well be of interest also to industrial players and start-up companies in sensors and sensor development. Any other researchers or parties interested in the topic and the general public are also welcome to attend.

Key-note speaker information
Prof. Dr Ir. Heidi Ottevaere is a professor at the Faculty of Engineering of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) since October 2009. Since 2019 Heidi chairs the Applied Physics and Photonics Department of the Faculty of Engineering that is responsible for the Photonics Education Curriculum at VUB. She is responsible for the Instrumentation and Metrology platform at the Photonics Innovation Center (https://www.b-phot.org/research/technical-infrastructure) and for the research unit ‘biophotonics’ of the Brussels Photonics Team B-PHOT chaired by Prof. Hugo Thienpont. She is coordinating and working on multiple research and industrial projects focusing on the design, fabrication and characterization of different types of photonic components and systems in the field of biophotonics, interferometry, holography and imaging. She graduated from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in 1997 as an electrotechnical engineer with majors in Photonics and received her PhD degree in Applied Sciences in 2003 from the same university.
