The second annual EXCILIGHT Days were merged together with the Krutyn Summer School 2017. The project meetings were spread over the whole week of the summer school to fulfil all of the planned actions assigned for EXCILIGHT days.

The meeting was joined by a member of the Scientific Advisory Board, Prof. Youhei Takeda, and project industry partners Christof Pflum (Merck) and Daniel Volz (Cynora), who gave additional talks to the students and other participants about business approaches in science, knowhow versus patents and financial models of companies. During the Summer School, the EXCILIGHT PhD students had the opportunity to meet and talk with several company representatives such as Beat Ruhstaller (Fluxim), Carsten Rothe (Novaled/Samsung) and Jacob Gavartin (Schrodinger).
