- OPERA2015
- Photonics21
The most complete information resource on Optics and Photonics in Europe.

The main objective of OPERA2015 is to provide a platform for interaction of
European IST-research in Optics and Photonics and to provide information
resource that will foster integration and co-ordination within the EU.

OPERA2015 is a co-ordinated action funded within the 6th Framework Programme of the EU and it is dedicated to developing a join strategy for Optics and Photonics in Europe.

OPERA2015 aims to provide:
  • The most complete and extensive database on Optics and Photonics in Europe
  • An up to date analysis of industries and markets such as:
    - Information, Communication and Imaging
    - Lighting and Displays
    - Manufacturing and Quality
    - Life Sciences and Health Care
    - Safety and Security
  • A vibrant and current Optic s and Photonics Information Exchange Platform (Innovative projects, news, events, trainings, jobs, laboratories, companies, etc.)

  • OPERA2015
    Photonics21 is a voluntary association of industrial enterprises and other stakeholders in the field of photonics in Europe.
    It unites the majority of the leading Photonics industries and relevant R&D stakeholders along the whole economic value chain throughout Europe. Presently, we can count as members more than 700 stakeholders who come from 32 countries.

    P21 undertakes to establish Europe as a leader in the development and deployment of Photonics in five industrial areas (Information and Communication, Lighting and Displays, Manufacturing, Life Science and Security) as well as in Education and Training.

    Its mission is the coordination of the research and development activities in Europe among all the contributing partners from education, basic research, applied research and development to manufacturing and all relevant applications.


    EPIC - The European Photonics Industry Consortium
    EPIC is working with industries, universities and the European Commission to build a more competitive photonics industrial sector in the European economic area, capable of both economic and technological growth in a highly competitive world-wide marketplace.

    EPIC works with the European Commission to translate industry needs into research and development programmes. EPIC owns and maintains the Photonic Technologies Roadmap.

    Membership in EPIC is open to companies, research institutes, universities and financial partners having operations in the European economic area.

    EPIC is owned and operated by its members. The annual budget is supported by subscription fees which are scaled to encourage participation of SMEs, R&D laboratories and universities, as well as larger companies.
