Photonics Gateway Launches

Dec 2013
SOUTHAMPTON, England, Dec. 18, 2013 — The objective of ukphotonics.org, a new national website, is mapping the UK's photonics activity to assist industry and academia with finding resources and collaborators.

Hosted by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Photonics at the University of Southampton, ukphotonics.org was launched last week to coincide with Horizon 2020's calls for photonics research projects

The site works by collating information from a host of sources, including universities and industry sites such as the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC).

“This national photonics gateway is the first port of call for anyone who has a question concerning photonics in the UK," said Dr. Gilberto Brambilla, director of the EPSRC Centre. "The site will enable users to match their requirements to expertise or capabilities offered by UK photonics organizations. It's the perfect starting point to finding your next collaboration opportunity."

"This site is important, as it will give UK companies and research prominence across Europe," said Susan Peacock, EPSRC information and communications technologies portfolio manager. "Photonics is central to many modern-day technologies and is a sector that is continuing to grow, with new applications emerging that offer solutions to many global societal challenges, including medical technologies for health, and security."
