Photonics21 Vice President Giorgio Anania announced project spending to exceed €277.9 million ($294.2 million) with 335 industrial partners involved. With the global photonics industry doubling from €228 billion ($241 billion) in 2005 to €447 billion ($473.3 billion) in 2015, Anania revealed how the industry had outstripped global GDP growth across the decade. He also predicted 42,000 new European photonics jobs by the end of Horizon 2020.
