Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), is investing up to £2 million to fund collaborative research and development (CR&D) projects focused on industrial research.

Innovate UK will fund projects in photonics for advanced, or ‘industrial’, manufacturing. Advanced manufacturing is commonly defined as the use and/or integration of innovative technologies in order to improve both products and processes.

Your project must aim to develop innovative products, technology-based applications and/or technology-based services with high market potential in the participating countries and/or throughout Europe.

Projects must include at least one partner from one of the participating countries of the EUREKA Network in Photonics. These countries are:

  • Austria
  • France
  • Germany
  • Israel
  • Poland
  • Switzerland

The competition is the result of a long-term co-operation in the area of photonics between Innovate UK and other funding agencies in the Photonics21 Mirror Group.

Total eligible project costs per project are expected to be between EUR 750,000 and 2 million. This includes costs from all partners, from the UK and all other countries.

Your project can last up to 3 years and is expected to start between January 2020 and June 2020.
