Applications due in December for Photonics Innovation Village
Date:11/28/2013

CARDIFF, UK (PRWEB) November 28, 2013

Submissions for the sixth Photonics Innovation Village, a competition to encourage the commercialisation of optics and photonics research and technology into useful products, are due 14 December. The competition showcases new products and connects researchers with technology transfer experts.

The Innovation Village provides each participant team with a complimentary “mini-booth” in a high-traffic section of the SPIE Photonics Europe exhibition in the Square Brussels Meeting Centre, to publicise their new applications and product development.

The village will be open to all attendees of the Photonics Europe conference and exhibition, and winners will be announced during a ceremony on 16 April. Exhibition dates are 15-16 April, and the conference runs 14-17 April.

Awards will be made in three categories, with winners determined by representatives from the European Commission Photonics Unit; SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics; Photonics21; Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB); a bank or venture capital company; and a large European photonics company.

Winners each will receive an award of €1500, and first and second runners-up each will win €500.

The Photonics Innovation Village is organised by B-PHOT, the Brussels Photonics Team at VUB, and supported by SPIE. Awards are sponsored by the Brussels Capital Region Government.

Products must be displayed during the event; however a demonstration does not have to be continuous. SPIE recommends supplying English-language literature describing the product.

Teams must be able to attend Photonics Europe. While there is no limitation on the number of team members, three is the recommended size. Improvements on already existing products, or products that already have been commercialised, will not be considered for the Innovation Village exhibition.

Complete application details are on the SPIE Photonics Europe website.

Winners in the Multilateral category in the previous competition in 2012 were:

  •     First place: Low-cost and easy-to-use photohaemostatic device based on LED technology; Light4Tech/P4L, Germany
  •     Runner-up: CMOS single-photon time-correlated SPAD arrays for biomedical applications; EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland

Individual category winners were:

  •     First place: Table-top setup for time-resolved detection of singlet oxygen luminescence in solutions and cell suspensions; Humboldt-University and Delta Vision, Germany
  •     Runner-up: ZOOM Spectre: compact high-resolution high-rate spectrometer; Resolution Spectra Systems, a spin-off of Joseph Fourier University, France
  •     Runner-up: MoBiSense, a truly low-cost and disposable mobile molecular sensor as a multipurpose sensing platform; NanoDev Scientific and Bilkent University, Turkey

EYEST (Excite Youth for Engineering Science and Technology) won a special prize for its Photonics Explorer program to create novel intra-curricular optics kits for secondary schools.

About SPIE

SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies. The Society serves nearly 235,000 constituents from approximately 155 countries, offering conferences, continuing education, books, journals, and a digital library in support of interdisciplinary information exchange, professional networking, and patent precedent. SPIE provided over $3.2 million in support of education and outreach programs in 2012.
