Photonics in Federal European FP7 R&D Program

20 March 2013

We are pleased to announce the release of our new report: "Photonics in Federal European FP7 R&D Program".
Based on Cordis database analysis, we have selected all FP7 projects from 2007 to 2012 that aimed at developing photonic systems and components. We found 374 project but including 75 in the challenge n°3 of the ICT calls. The report demonstrate once more the strongly pervasive nature of Photonics technologies and why it was a good decision to select Photonics as a KET.
Using our value chain tools, we have been able to analysis how European budget are spent:
- per country
- per value chain step (process, material, components, subsystems, systems)
- per function (acquiring information, transmitting and shaping, delivering and storage, lighting, energy providing and processing)
- per targeted markets
