Photonics Research & Innovation Actions

Please find below the current Research and Innovation Action in which B-PHOT is strongly involved. Underneath you can also find the link to projects that are already finalized.

Current Projects

Please find below the current Research and Innovation Action in which B-PHOT is strongly involved in most cases as coordinator.

PhotonHub Europe (2021-2025)

Pan-European photonics digital innovation hub to help SMEs and mid-caps to become highly competitive digital businesses through faster and smarter deployment of photonics-based technologies.


VortexLC, short for 'Vortex enhanced liquid chromatography for HbA1c monitoring based diabetes management in a globalized setting', involves collaboration with six European partners.


The European Photonics CAReer LAunch Pad wants to create a sustainable career camp of excellence for the European photonics community that encourages STEM university students and young researchers to pursue careers in photonics.
