Chris Gracie, secretary of the Scottish Optoelectronics Association, would like to make AILU members aware of the NEXPRESSO, the "Network for EXchange and PRototype Evaluation of photonicS componentS and Optical systems".
NEXPRESSO’s objectives are to:
Purchase at marginal cost pre-competitive photonic devices from innovative European companies and put them in the hands of European researchers and students, at no net cost to the university or to the company that furnished the devices and facilitate transfer of device evaluation results to potential end-users, assisting companies to access new markets and new applications.
The first call for pre-market components is now open.
Details of the project can be found at address below:
