About Jena

Conferences in Jena, the city of light – science location with figures of light

Jena is the cradle of the optical industry. In the middle of the 19th century, Carl Zeiss, Ernst Abbe and Otto Schott laid the basis for rapid development with their intelligent collaboration. With two universities, several outstanding research centers and the resident high-tech industry, Jena is now a prosperous location for business and science. The areas of competence of the City of Light are primarily in optics, photonics and health and life sciences.
