B-PHOT VUB, together with Barco NV and more than 30 other Flemish companies and research institutes, is preparing a 7-years roadmap for photonics in Flanders. The goal is to identify Flanders’ strengths and opportunities in the domain of photonics, and to elaborate a smart specialisation plan to further strengthen Flanders’ R&I capacities in photonics. B-PHOT VUB hereby emphasizes the crucial role of SMEs and has conceived a new instrument to support these dynamic and flexible, yet vulnerable companies.
“Kanaal Z” -the prime TV channel in Flanders for economic news- highlights the potential impact of B-PHOT's innovation approach in its evening journal of 17 april 2014 with a testimonial from Hans Nicasy, CEO of Peira, and Prof. Hugo Thienpont, director of research of B-PHOT VUB.
