A Centre of Excellence in photonics with international outreach
In 2013, the OPTITEC cluster gave a new lease of life to the project dynamic of the for OPTOPOLIS, by means of a partnership with Aix-Marseille-Université (AMU), identifying photonics as one of the priority fields for AMU and for AMIDEX.
The aim of the project is to develop a Centre of Excellence in the Aix-Marseille territory, along the lines of Minalogic and Nanotechnologies in Grenoble.
In the course of a series of meetings with the AMIDEX Foundation, a first action plan was drawn up, including a call for projects specifically focused on photonics.
Other actions will become operational in 2014 (training courses, show-rooms, open innovation).
