March 23, 2015 at 09:38

Flanders' Chamber of Commerce and Industry VOKA ( http://www.voka.be/eng/ ) has interviewed Prof. Hugo Thienpont on the economic impact of photonics at the occasion of 2015 International Year of Light and Light-based technologies (http://www.light2015.org/ ). The article (in Dutch) was published in the March 2015 issue of VOKA’s magazine “Ondernemers” and is distributed over 18.000 companies in Flanders and Brussels.  

In the interview Prof. Thienpont explains the impact of photonics on our global economy and emphasizes its key-enabling role in Flemish companies. He also highlights the EC funded project ACTPHAST (http://www.actphast.eu/  ), which he coordinates, and the facilitating role of this European Consortium in bringing cutting-edge photonics innovation to SMEs through open innovation and open access to Europe’s best high-tech photonics platforms.
