The PhotonHub Europe project, a new pan-European center for digital innovation in photonics, is benefiting from a 19-million-euros investment as part of the European Horizon 2020 program. PhotonHub Europe is coordinated by the VUB in Belgium. It will help European SMEs and mid-sized companies to become highly competitive digital businesses through faster and smarter deployment of photonics-based technologies. To this end, PhotonHub Europe will establish a unique photonics innovation hub that will integrate all the best photonics technologies, facilities, skills and experience from 53 leading competence centers across Europe under one roof as a one-stop-shop solution with open access for any company wishing to innovate in photonics, anywhere in Europe.
The Hubert Curien laboratory of UJM will participate in the R&D activities of the PhotonHub Europe project through its experimental platforms in photonics (Ultrafast Lasers, Characterization/Irradiation, NanoSaintEtienne Clean Room) and the researchers of its Photonic Optics and Microwave department. The laboratory and more broadly the Jean Monnet University will also participate in the training activities of PhotonHub Europe through the University Research School MANUTECH SLEIGHT funded under the PIA3 Future Investment Plan.
