The National Photonics Initiative (NPI) is a collaborative alliance among industry, academia and government seeking to raise awareness of photonics - the application of light - and drive US funding and investment in five key photonics-driven fields critical to US competitiveness and national security: advanced manufacturing, communications and information technology, defense and national security, energy, and health and medicine.

The NPI will participate in the Congressional Visits Day (CVD) on March 17 and 18, 2015 in Washington, DC. This is a great way to educate your local member of Congress about the importance of optics and photonics. For more information and to sign up please visit here.
