PhotonHub Europe - training and innovation support 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 PhotonHub experts are ready to assist in your product development and to teach you about 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.
Courses in fiber optics and nanophotonics
In the framework of PhotonHub Europe, RISE offers three courses in photonics and fiber optics
- Webinar: Fiber optic sensing and specialty fibers in Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 (two hour on-line training)
- Webinar: Nanophotonics intro – technologies and applications in Sustainable Environment & Energy (two hour on-line training)
- Specialty Optical Fibres for sensing applications in Industry (full day demonstration training on-site Kista/Stockholm)
7.4 million Euro is earmarked for eligible companies, for innovation projects within the PhotonHub framework. Experts, laboratory resources, prototyping and test facilities across Europe are available to the projects.
