Photon10 Industry and technology programme






Photon10 Industry and Technology Programme
The three day Industry Technology Programme (ITP) is specifically aimed at engineers and physicists in the photonics industry. This will run in parallel with the academic programme. 

The Industry Technology Programme at Photon10 is designed to provide a bridge to the commercial development of photonics enabled applications. Collaboration between academia and industry is often a key part of new product development and this year’s ITP will focus on this interface.

In the past 5 years the Technology Strategy Board have helped to fund collaborative R&D projects involving Photonics worth over £130million. The first day of the ITP, chaired by the Photonics and Plastic Electronics KTN, will showcase some of these projects helping to disseminating the knowledge that has been developed and share experiences of being involved in TSB competitions. Projects in 3 key area of advanced lighting, imaging for health and security and next generation light sources will be featured from a range of different R&D competitions. This is an ideal opportunity to learn more about the output from collaborative R&D projects and the impact they are having on the partners and the market, now and in the future.

The second day of the ITP looks to the future, highlighting potential new collaborative projects and mechanisms of funding new product development and commercialisation often through collaboration. Technology Strategy Board and European collaborative funding mechanisms will be covered, including insights into EU Framework ICT call 6 due in the summer of 2010. EPSRC will also discuss their approach to joint industrial funding and there will be insights into full and mini Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and an update on regionally administered grants for R&D.

The ITP will close by opening the floor to delegates to pitch their concepts for future collaborative projects to attract additional partners and obtain feedback to refine their concepts.
