The participating funding bodies from the above mentioned countries intend to fund joint research and development in the area of photonics. Applicants are expected to undertake research aiming at market-able products, services or technologies with high market potential in the participating countries and/or Europe. This call will be administered under the regulations of the intergovernmental EUREKA network.
This initiative continues the cooperation within the Photonics21 Mirror Group comprising research funders in the field of photonics in Europe (including associated countries) who jointly implemented a number of transnational calls under the ERA-Net / Cofund scheme of the EC research framework programmes.
Interested parties are invited to submit R&D&I project proposals addressing photonics for advanced manufacturing. Advanced (industrial) manufacturing is commonly defined as the use and/or integration of innovative technologies – here: photonics – in order to improve both products and processes. Proposals for R&D&I projects sought to be funded under this call should therefore:
Photonic technologies to be investigated particularly include (but are not limited to):
Industry sectors addressed particularly include (but are not limited to):
Expected project results will have to contribute to the development of commercial products, applications and / or technology-based services. The project proposals have to comply with the following guidelines:
(Information on the national eligibility of participants and on applicable national funding rules can be found in section 5 of this call document and in the relevant national funding guidelines.)
Any consortium whose cooperative R&D&I project is consistent with the above criteria can apply to the present announcement in accordance with the national laws, rules, regulations and procedures applicable to the individual consortium members.
