Covid-19; a message to our readers and commercial partners

Share this on social media:

We are still open for business! As of today, everyone at Europa Science – publisher of Electro Optics – has been advised to work at home, but we are committed to keeping our publications running. 

While there are bound to be some knock-on effects to our processes in the short term, as a communications business we are committed to keeping our publications running throughout the coming weeks and months; indeed, there is going to be an increased need for effective communication in all the industries in which we operate our publications.

We are very much open for business both in terms of our editorial offering and our commercial operations, and are keen to continue spreading the word of your news, products and events as we progress through this period. In particular, as a company we are seeing a big growth in interest in our webcast offering – so don't hesitate to get in touch if we can help out in that regard.

Please let us know how you are coping with the current situation – as businesses, research organisations and as important components of the wider photonics industry. How are your organisations aiming to deal with the effects of Covid-19? What are you doing to facilitate important research and the continuation of business practices at this time? 

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us over the coming weeks and months.
