1 TOWARDS PHOTONICS AS A KEY ENABLING TECHNOLOGY FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF SOCIETY AND ECONOMIC GROWTH IN FLANDERS Prof. Hugo Thienpont Brussels Photonics Team Vrije Universiteit Brussel A MULTI-ANNUAL STRATEGIC RESEARCH & INNOVATION ROADMAP

2 The EC identified 10 key-application domains to support Europe in its innovation endeavours with photonics as key-enabling technology * Laser Material Processing Machine Vision Medical Technologies Optical Communications Information Technology Lighting Flat Panel Displays Solar Energy Defence Optical Systems * Source: Photonics 21 Strategic Research Agenda

3 3

4 Photonics Key-enabling technology for Europe and for Flanders FLANDERS: HOME TO MANY PHOTONICS COMPANIES Infrared nightvision for safety and security Optical fiber sensors for smart structures 3-Dimensional displays and projectors Freeform micro-optics optics Opto-electronic chips for automotive Optical engines for food-sorting Optical interconnects for Local Area Networks High-efficiency lighting applications 4

5 Low-cost plastic fiber connectors for Fiber-To-The-Home Branch off point Drop Fiber array Fiber terminal point Drop 2-D SM fiber array connector Diameter accuracy = 1.2µm Positioning accuracy = 0.6µm Average losses = 1550nm 30mm Pre-alignment structure 12mm 180 butt-coupling connector Commerical MT-RJ connector Hole-assisted fiber DPW connector plates Laser assisted industrial food-sorting, quality and safety control, and plastic recycling 5

6 150 MBit/s POF datacom transceiver for the automotive Power budget, tolerancing analysis, automotive specs. (Product release MLX75605) Development of a high-resolution 1200 dpi print engine Y Z X TC 6

7 LED-based luminaires High-end LED-walls for visual performance Laser-based projection system for cinema Product release NX-4 7

8 FLANDERS PHOTONICS CONSORTIUM Over 30 Flemish photonics companies, research institutes and innovation clusters Formed in August 2013 to develop a strategic roadmap to 2020 for photonics in Flanders with support from IWT CONSORTIUM ORGANISATION 8

9 KEY THEMES ADDRESSED ROADMAPPING PROCESS EU Photonics Roadmap to 2020 STEP❶: initial assessment of direction for photonics in Flanders in context of EU direction for photonics. Discussed in workshops in December 2013/January STEP❼: completing the Flanders Photonics Roadmap in the EU context. Final draft sign-off with consortium members. End May STEP❷: completing a first working draft of the Flanders Photonics Roadmap. Discussed in workshops on 28 th February STEP❻: gathering final inputs from industry on the final draft. Re-draft. April/May Flanders Photonics Roadmap to 2020 Major Societal Challenges & Global Market Opportunities SWOT Analysis for Flanders Value Chain in Flanders R&I Challenges and Actions Cross-KET Synergies STEP❺: aligning the Photonics Roadmap with Other KET Roadmaps for Flanders. April STEP❹: aligning the Photonics Roadmap with NIP direction for Flanders. March Other KET Roadmaps for Flanders New Industrial Policy for Flanders Photonics & Photonics-enabled industry in Flanders STEP❸: gathering quantitative data from industry via on online survey. March/April

10 VALUE CHAIN ECOSYSTEMS & SMART SPECIALISATION e.g. WG5: Security, Metrology & Sensors RESEARCH & INNOVATION ACTION PLAN TO 2020 e.g. WG5: Security, Metrology & Sensors 10

11 CROSS-KET SYNERGIES Sterkte Belangrijke en aktieve industriële sector innovatie in lijn met prioriteiten van de EU aktief in PHOTONICS 21 verschillende bedrijven betrokken bij EU projecten Spin-offs, KMO s en grote bedrijven Fotonica in Vlaanderen Zwakte weinig bekende sector bij beleidsmakers niet prominent aanwezig op Vlaamse agenda geen platform voor fotonica in Vlaanderen Kritische massa aan uitstekende onderzoeksinstellingen basis en toegepast onderzoek industriëel onderzoek aktief in PHOTONICS 21 verschillende bedrijven betrokken bij EU projecten technologieplatformen Samenwerking Fotonica -bedrijven en kennisinstellingen Sterke zichtbaarheid/impact Fotonica Vlaanderen bij EU competentiepolen nog te weinig op de hoogte geen onderzoeksinstituut zoals bvb. VIB te weinig funding voor zware infrastructuur samenwerking KMO s en onderzoeksinstellingen Sterke track-record/aandeel Vlaanderen in projectwerving bij EU Toekomstverkenningen Fotonica in Vlaanderen veelbelovend Opportuniteiten in high-end high-tech productie Opportuniteiten in cross-sectional innovation Ondernemersgeest /spin-off opportuniteiten 11

12 Laagdrempelige ondersteuning van innovatiebehoeften van bedrijven met de sleuteltechnologie fotonica: een opportuniteit, op maat gemaakt voor Vlaamse KMO s! Photonics innovation show-stoppers for companies Human resources and expertise in-house experts and photonics expertise are missing supporting an in-house R&D team is too expensive identifying external experts is often a shot in the dark dedicated task forces for photonic solutions are almost nonexistent Technology in-house cutting-edge photonics technology is missing investment risk is too high or financially irresponsible multiple-stop technology shopping fails partial solutions are often incompatible single-stop shop technology supply chains are almost nonexistent Roadblock Removers 12

13 REMOVE photonics innovation roadblocks CREATE single-stop shop solutions provider based on top technology platforms SUPPORT European SMEs and LSCs task forces for photonics innovation composed of the best EU experts prioritize product innovation open new markets decrease the time-to-market grow business create jobs Technology supply-chains support innovation from design to prototype Optical Measurement and Characterization Low-Cost Low-Volume Manufacturing Mastering and Prototyping Technologies Packaging and Integration Optical Modelling and Photonic Design Demonstrators and Prototypes 13

14 More than 200 top-experts from 23 institutes ready to provide innovation support to industry ACTPHAST s STRENGTHS + variety of top technology platforms task forces with the best EU experts 14

15 ACTPHAST s basic support principles solution-driven support support instead of funding support for targeted innovation challenges supporting a variety of sectors innovation instrument dedicated to SMEs potential impact is key ACTPHAST supports companies at pre-competitive level with product innovation from TRL 2 to TRL 5 15

16 Benefits for industry focus on the company s innovation challenge single-stop shop top experts and technology centralized contact point quick guidance subsidy lowers company s innovation threshold low administration timely support Company details Company name Location Company type Peira Belgium SME Description Application field Technology integrator focused on design, production and maintenance of customized research platforms for life sciences.
