Micro-optics holds tremendous potential for SMEs and large companies to develop competitive products and to boost product innovation. Micro-optics however continuously requires advanced knowledge as well as a complex technology supply chain, which are very often not affordable. This project targets to pro-actively provide companies with timely, cost-effective, investment-free Access to a unique "one-stop-shop" European Centre To Micro-Optics Expertise, Services and Technologies "ACTMOST". The access of predominantly SMEs to leading edge technology and knowledge provided by the ACTMOST partners will be realized by them through focused collaborations in so called user projects and through hands-on training of industry staff in highly advanced laboratories of the ACTMOST research institutions. ACTMOST also targets to develop a business model which would enable continuation of SME and company support without public funding. As such ACTMOST intends to be a major driving force to sustainably support European industry in keeping a leading position in micro-optic and micro-photonic enhanced products, thus strengthening the competitiveness of Europe and creating new jobs.
