The European consortium “ACTMOST” has been testing a new industry support model with financial support from the European Commission. The initiative enabled companies – and in particular SMEs – to access top-level technology platforms and experts in no time, at no cost, and risk-free to turn novel concepts into practical and manufacturable products. Photonics – one of the key-technologies that support our present-day information society – was identified as ideal test-case for this new subsidy model.
