“PhotonDelta 2017 – The next phase begins!” – presented by Ewit Roos, PhotonDelta, at Photonic Integration Conference, Sep 27, 2016, High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
The European Photonics market is now worth around €70 billion. Grant funding to support research and innovation in SME’s has grown to reach €100M a year. But PhotonDelta argues that a more collaborative approach is the way to ensure European photonics gets 10-20 times the funding we see today. In his talk, Ewit Roos will outline extensive plans to assist photonics companies and related supply chains accelerate their time to market. He will explain why the new PhotonDelta cooperative is offering early access to IP as well as organising deep-dive strategy workshops to construct long-term technology roadmaps.
