SPIE Joins in Praise for ‘Huge Step Forward’ for Innovation R&D Enabled by Photonics21 Actions
Date:5/17/2013

on, and that it will “foster job and wealth creation in Europe through a long-term investment commitment by the photonics industry and the EC.”

Kroes emphasized her commitment to keeping photonics ? recognized by the EC as one of six Key Enabling Technologies (KET) ? as an area of strength for European industry, saying that “this proposal is ambitious and strategic; not a plan to subsidize an industry, but to strengthen Europe's innovation potential.”

EC Director for Components and Systems Khalil Rouhana told Photonics21 that the final Horizon 2020 budget should represent a 30% increase over current Framework Programme Seven (FP7) spending. That would ensure at least €7 billion in funding for information and communications, of which €1.4 billion would likely be allocated to the KETs of photonics, microelectronics, and nanoelectronics.

A decision on the final budget for Horizon 2020 is expected by the end of 2013.

At the meeting, Rafael Betancur of the Institute of Photonic Sciences in Barcelona and Asaf Shahmoon of the School in Advanced Optical Technologies in Erlangen were presented with the Photonics21 2013 Student Innovation Award for outstanding industry-related student research in photonics. The award is sponsored by SPIE Europe, the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, Hamamatsu, and the European Commission.

Vice-President Kroes appointed 17-year-old physics and mathematics student Jana Husiman as Photonics21's Young Ambassador for Photonics Education. The award is supported jointly by the European Commission and Photonics21 and is targeted at promoting training in photonics technologies and contributing to a highly qualified workforce in Europe.
