"ACTPHAST: Prototyping for SMEs" – Presented by Francis Berghmans, ACTPHAST/ VUB

ACTPHAST supports and accelerates the innovation capacity of European companies, with emphasis on small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), by providing them with direct access to the expertise and state-of-the-art facilities of Europe’s leading photonics research centres.

The 23 ACTPHAST partners provide a full spectrum of photonics technology platforms ranging from fibre optics and micro optics, to highly integrated photonic platforms, with capabilities extending from design through to full system prototyping.

Access to top-level experts and leading photonics technology platforms is realized through focused innovation projects executed in 6-9 month timeframes. ACTPHAST is expected to deliver a substantial increase in the revenues and employment numbers of the supported companies.
