Sergio Nicoletti presents MIRPHAB at the Photonics Public Private Partnership (PPP) Annual Meeting that was held on the 28 and 29 March 2017 at the Le Plaza Hotel in Brussels.This meeting kicks off the discussion for the future strategic direction of the PPP in Europe. It provides participants with information about the Photonics PPP achievements, latest news on EU calls and financing opportunities beyond the Horizon 2020 programme. The event offers a platform to network with the European Commission, Parliament and Regions and with colleagues from Photonics Industry and Science.

Sergio Nicoletti, Coordinator of MIRPHAB, announces the continuous submission scheme for the Pilot Line.

Dear MIRPHAB users and supporters,

We successfully completed the First MIRPHAB Call for Applications and we are now starting the first series of prototyping for the selected proposals.

What we have learned from this first run is that the submission of a proposal to MIRPHAB is a process that requires continual exchange between you and our technical experts to precisely set the specifications that will fulfill your needs.

For this reason, we decided to change the submission process previously organized by periodic calls to a continuous submission scheme. From now on you can contact us anytime: personnel from the MIRPHAB Outreach Partners will help you providing all relevant information may be required for the submission of the application.

Should you need any support you might contact us anytime directly via the website or by emailing me at sergio.nicoletti@cea.fr.

The Pilot Lines mean that thousands of high tech SMEs in Europe – who often lack access to advanced, cost-intensive infrastructures and expertise needed to manufacture new and innovative products – will be able to take their good ideas, scale-them up and validate them with the first customers for commercial production.

The Pilot Lines will focus on health applications, flexible organic light-emitting diodes and sensors for the detection of chemicals in gas and liquids. The European Commission has invested €35 million in these projects to boost Europe’s industrial competitiveness. This is part of the Commission’s €700 million investment in the Photonics Public Private Partnership over the seven years of Horizon 2020, the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
