The technology support that ACTMOST can provide encompasses the entire food-chain of micro-photonics: from optical design, to measurement, prototyping, packaging all the way to proof-of-concept demonstration, reliability testing, and pre-production level fabrication.

ACTMOST aims at providing complete solutions  for companies through focused collaborations  and through hands-on training of industry staff in the highly advanced laboratories of the ACTMOST technology partners.

Companies can contact ACTMOST through a central help desk that will provide information on how to get access to ACTMOST TECHNOLOGY and training facilities.
