Technology Platform for Phonotics in Europe

Photonics21 is a voluntary association of industrial enterprises and other stakeholders in the field of photonics in Europe. It unites the majority of the leading Photonics industries and relevant R&D stakeholders along the whole economic value chain throughout Europe. Presently, we can count as members more than 900 stakeholders who come from 32 countries.

P21 undertakes to establish Europe as a leader in the development and deployment of Photonics in five industrial areas (Information and Communication, Lighting and Displays, Manufacturing, Life Science and Security) as well as in Education and Training.

Its mission is the coordination of the research and development activities in Europe among all the contributing partners from education, basic research, applied research and development to manufacturing and all relevant applications.

The entry into the "photon century" requires a shared European initiative that enables industry and research to uphold their outstanding initiatives to explore the nearly limitless future applications of light and to reap the expected benefits in terms of creating both jobs and wealth. Many important European industries, from chip manufacturing and lighting, health care and life sciences, to space, defence and the transport and automotive sectors rely on the same fundamental mastery of light. Without strong European leadership in photonics technologies, these industries will be left vulnerable to strong competition from the USA and Asia.

To achieve this leadership for the benefit of Europe and our citizens, an ambitious programme is required to:

- Supply the necessary research environment capable of supporting the visionnary and industrially relevant R&D activities for photonics components, systems and their application over a broad range of industry sectors;
- Establish strategic links between mainly SME-based photonics industries and principal user industries to share their long term vision and to mobilise a critical mass resources;
- Foster co-operation and smooth out the current fragmentation of national and European R&D activities.
