The Silmo Academy plans to award a €10,000 grant to a research project in the field of optics and science during its 2016 scientific symposium. Proposals for the grant may be submitted up to Sept. 6 by any individual or team doing research in these fields and living in the European Union. The three best projects will be presented on Sept. 20-23, and the winning project will then be announced at the symposium, on Sept. 26. The theme for this year's symposium, which marks its 7th edition, will be “Reading.”
