„PhotonHub Europe“: Strengthening European competitiveness through industrial use of Photonics

Press Release / December 16, 2020

A photonics network of pan-European scale will start in January 2021 as part of the EU Horizon 2020 program: The project „Photonics Digital Innovation Hub“– PhotonHub Europe for short – is designed to make small and medium-sized European companies fit for the future by supporting them in the use of photonic technologies. The „PhotonHub Europe“ expects more than 1000 new high-tech jobs and around one billion euros in sales by 2025. The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT coordinates one of the eight technology platforms. With its focus on laser-based production, this platform plays an important role in European photonics.
