ACTPHAST - photonics innovation accelerator for European companies

ACTPHAST, which stands for Access Center for Photonics Innovation Solutions and Technology Support, is a unique one-stop-shop innovation hub funded by the European Commission which combines the state-of-the-art expertise and technologies of 23 of the leading research institutes in photonics from across Europe (the ACTPHAST Partners), and makes them available to any European company for the purposes of collaborating on photonics innovation projects. The program is coordinated by the Brussels Photonics Team (B-Phot) of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). ACTPHAST is open to any European company, but is especially friendly to the needs of SMEs with 100% subsidy for innovation projects with SMEs and rapid innovation cycles of 6 months duration on average. 90% of ACTPHAST projects are with SMEs and nearly 50% of these are companies whose core business is outside of photonics, but who wish to incorporate state-of-the-art photonics components into their products to provide customers with innovative new solutions.
