PhotonHub Europe - a European resource network in photonics

You'll find photonics almost everywhere, from cameras and traffic lights to within advanced medical equipment and telecom systems. This project is a pan-European collaboration where expertise and resources in photonics are made available to European industry.

Photonics is one of Europe's identified key enabling technologies, an area that is indispensable for the development of innovations and solutions for a future sustainable society.

The PhotonHub Europe project brings together 53 of Europe's leading research institutes and industrial laboratories with a common purpose - to support european industry with relevant photonics skills and relevant photonics resources where needed, such as education, skills development, innovation support, prototype production and industrialization. 500 experts ready to engage with industry that can benefit from photonics.  

RISE has several strong groups in photonics, including fiber optics, nanotechnology, and metrology. We participate as an expert organization within the project. Together with the Swedish industry organization PhotonicSweden, RISE is the Swedish node of the project. We are also reaching out to Norway and Denmark.

Courses in fiber optics

In the framework of PhotonHub Europe, RISE offers three courses in photonics and fiber optics

 

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement 101016665. The project runs within the 'Industrial Leadership' program.
