Noteworthy presence of B-PHOT at Dutch-Belgian economic mission on photonics

January 4, 2012 at 10:04

On 14 and 15 December 2011 the “Stichting Photonics Cluster Netherlands” (www.photogenicscluster.org ) and Mikrocentrum BV (www.mikrocentrum.nl ) organized an economic mission between The Netherlands and Belgium on the topic of photonics. The initiative was initiated by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation.  The event took place in the Plaza Hotel, Antwerp, and was well attended by representatives from a variety of Belgian and Dutch companies.

At this occasion Prof. Hugo Thienpont, one of the prominent speakers, spoke about the economic impact of photonics in Europe and illustrated how B-PHOT supports Flemish and European SMEs and large-scale companies with photonics innovation and technology transfer. He also presented “ACTMOST” (http://www.actmost.eu/ ), the new European subsidy model that B-PHOT and 13 European partners are currently testing to provide expertise and technology support at no cost to European companies that want to innovate their products with photonics.
