Businesses can apply for a share of funding under Horizon 2020's ERA-NET co-funded competition to support photonics-based sensing technologies
The aim of this photonic sensing competition is to improve Europe's market share in photonics-based sensing technologies.
The joint, co-funded competition is a transnational call for research and development (R&D) proposals. Projects should support the fast development and implementation of photonics-based sensing technologies. Proposals should include R&D for photonic techniques for the technology readiness levels (TRL) 3 to 6.
This competition is jointly funded under Horizon 2020's ERA-NET Cofund Programme.
The national and regional funding bodies from participating countries and regions, including the UK, will jointly implement the funding.
They will consider the following application areas:
- safety, including food safety
