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)
  • VDI, Germany
  • 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.
