Jobs and Growth in Europe – Realizing the Potential of Photonics

I. The Photonics

I. The Photonics Public-Private Partnership – Leveraging Investment in Europe “Combined with other smart technologies, [Photonics] has led to exciting innovations addressing bankable economic challenges” 19 George Ugras, chairman of the 2016 Inpho Venture Summit 20 Increasing industrial R&D spending and investment hit the headlines The Photonics industry is today an attractive sector for investment – by companies already active in this sector and wanting to consolidate their position or by external investors seeking to profit from the potential offered. Over the last few years, industrial R&D spending and industrial investment in Photonics have made headlines: Plessey Semiconductors Ltd., for instance, announced in 2015 an £60M expansion of its LED manufacturing facility; 21 in 2015, the Hutchinson Group – one of the UK and Ireland’s biggest laser engineering firms – announced the creation of 80 new jobs as part of a £4.1M (€5.5M) investment. 22 Last year, the science and technology company Merck KGaA opened a new production plant for OLED materials; 23 Indigo Diabetes, a new Belgian startup, won investment capital amounting to €7M for developing an optical glucose monitoring chip; 24 Trumpf, the world’s largest industrial laser company set up a €40M venture fund; 25 the holographic display developer Holoxica won €1.3M to develop next-generation 3D medical displays 26 – to name but a few. Investments made in the photonics sector aim at addressing a wide range of potential applications, from displays to laser applications or to applications in the healthcare sector. I.3. Industry involvement in PPP projects Fig. 6: Industry Participation in Photonics projects in FP7 & Horizon 2020. The Photonics PPP is on a good track to reach the Horizon 2020 aim of increasing industry participation to at least 50%, which is the optimal share of industry participation and which ensures balancing the interests of Industry and Science community. Source: VDI TZ GmbH. The Photonics PPP has led to a strong increase of the industry participation in EU-funded Photonics R&D projects. Significantly higher industry involvement in PPP Projects than in former funding frameworks In fact, the PPP can point to considerable achievements: today, about 45% of the Photonics PPP consortium partners of Photonics R&D projects under Horizon 2020 are industries – compared to 35% in Photonics R&D projects under the framework of FP7.
