International Day of Light

Special activities to showcase the science and technology of light

On 14 and 15 May, the MNACTEC will be hosting a number of activities within the context of the 3rd edition of the Central Event in Spain to mark International Day of Light. This year the event is to take place in the city of Terrassa, and will be organised by a local committee involving representatives of the Faculty of Optics and Optometry of Terrassa (FOOT) and its Board of Trustees, the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), Terrassa City Council and the Spanish Optics Society (SEDOPTICA).

International Day of Light is a global initiative aiming to raise public awareness of the crucial role played by the science of light and related technologies in the modern world. It covers all aspects connected with light in the broadest sense, including such diverse sectors as eyesight, energy, communications, education, medicine, art, culture and sustainable development.
