You can’t posibly have missed it: this year it is the International Year of Light. We celebrate light as something so important even though most of the time we take it for granted… And in many countries there are events and activities organized to bring light to the attention of many and to get you involved. In The Netherlands, we started the Year of Light last January with a fantastic line up of speakers in Science Center Nemo, among others Prof. Kobus Kuipers, Prof. Robbert Dijkgraaf and artist Giny Vos. In Austria, we launch the International Year of Light on 9 and 10 April 2015, with over a thousand people invited to join the seminars and presentations and keynote speaker Olafur Eliasson kicking off. Keep an eye on this place to read and see how it was and what you could do yourself to join the Year of Light.
