ACCELERATION OF INNOVATION PROJECTS IN THE FIELD OF PHOTONICS

ACTPHAST4.0 (AcceleraTing PHotonics InnovAtion for SME's: a one STop-shop-incubator) is a platform that supports and accelerates the innovation capacity of European companies by providing direct access to photonics expertise and infrastructure of the leading technology centers in Europe (ACTPHAST4.0 partners). The goal of ACTPHAST4.0 is to help companies exploit the potential of photonics.

Photonics is a transversal knowledge capable of impacting in a wide variety of industrial sectors. The main areas of application are: advanced production (Industry 4.0), automotive, aerospace, energy, environment, life sciences and health, safety, metrology, sensors or displays.

Support to innovation projects

ACTPHAST4.0 contributes to photonics innovation projects reducing the associated risk by means of its own financing instrument. ACTPHAST4.0 operates as an open call available to all European companies (large and small, although it is especially targeted at SMEs). The support is based on financing the tasks developed by ACTPHAST4.0 partners. Projects are structured in two stages: A first stage of viability studies or conceptual design up to € 30k and a second stage in which the company contributes with 25% of the cost.

Additionally, the technological support offered by ACTPHAST4.0 is complemented by experts in the area of business and finance to help innovation activities reach the market.
