Photonics Based Sensing ERA-NET Cofund
PhotonicSensing is a joint initiative which contributes to the fast development and implementation of photonics based sensing technologies and therefore further improve the European market share in this domain. It is organised as a competition for funding and will be implemented jointly by the participating national and regional funding bodies from the following countries and regions:
- FFG, Austria (Coordinator)
- VLAIO, Flanders Region (Belgium)
- BMBF/VDI TZ, Germany
- InnovationAuth, Israel
- NCBR, Poland
- FCT, Portugal
- TÜBITAK, Turkey
- Regione Toscana, Tuscany Region (Italy)
- Innovate UK, United Kingdom
It is expected to fund a mixture of small and large projects, with total costs typically in the range of €0.5m to €4m. Each R&D Project shall consist minimum of two separate legal partners from at least two different participating countries and/or regions. Projects must be collaborative, application-oriented and pre-competitive.
PhotonicSensing has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 688735.
