Research Obj.: ICT 26 – 2014: Photonics KET. What are you looking for?
2. Is this new or has it been called before?
The biophotonics objective has been called before in 2012 (call 8).
The lighting innovation objective builds further on a CIP (ICT PSP) call in 2011 for lighting pilot actions and an R&D objective from FP7 ICT call 11 and is therefore the next step in bridging the valley of death from research in the lab to the market.
Some CSA actions (coordination of stakeholders and outreach) have been called for before, but these actions have come to an end and further support in these areas is required.
3. Current project portfolio (if relevant)
Many FP7 projects are running in these areas – see http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/ict/photonics/projects-fp7_en.html
4. What do you NOT want?
We do not want academic driven projects in the application driven R&I actions and innovation actions. Only for the area of disruptive approaches more academic driven projects can be expected.
We do not want proposals in which strong industrial commitment and credible exploitation strategies and business cases are missing.
5. Who are the leading players?
6. Is there a key group of actors or ETP driving this?
The technology platform Photonics21 and the Photonics Public Private Partnership which is being created are driving this, and all stakeholders and leading players are represented in it. See:
7. Are there any additional / background documents?
