INTERREG OIP4NWE: Open-Innovation Photonics Pilot for North-West Europe

May 2, 2019 at 15:04

The Open-Innovation Photonics pilot for North West Europe  (OIP4NWE) aims to drastically reduce high R&D costs and time for SMEs in the field of photonics. A significant decrease of the defect rate in pilot production and a shorter throughput time can help establish a thousand integrated firms within a decade. 
The role of VUB B-PHOT in this €13.9m project is twofold. First, we will set up a voucher scheme that will provide SMEs access to the pilot line to allow them to scale up their production.
Secondly, B-PHOT is responsible for interfacing the Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) with the outside world using external optics for beam shaping and light coupling.
