- Create growth and new jobs, improve skills and education
Implementing the relevant FP7 and Horizon 2020 (H2020) calls for proposals in photonics and organic electronics (OLAE) and managing the unit's portfolio of on-going and newly selected research and innovation (R&I) projects.
In OLAE: The following barriers need to be addressed in order to help the area further develop and grow, and move it from an emerging and promising market sector to an established one:
Interactions with Photonics21 and OLAE stakeholders and participation in conferences and other events; etc.
Contribution to awareness raising of the photonics and OLAE industrial and academic stakeholders for our programmes and to an enhanced cooperation in a broadened stakeholder community.
|Baseline||Industrial participation in the last FP7 calls : 33% industry, with 15% SMEs|
|Target||At least 50% of industrial participation in H2020 calls, with 20% SMEs(2013 to 2015)|
High quality projects in photonics and OLAE launched from the calls for proposals addressing:
|Baseline||The average number of patents per 10 M€ spent on R&D worldwide (10-15 patents)|
|Target||At least 15 patents filed per year(2013 - 2015)|
|Target||At least three major technology breakthroughs per year from running projects (in terms of functionality or performance, e.g.: achieving world record performance in optical data transmission, sensitivity / speed of detection of diseases, etc.)(2013 - 2015)|
|Baseline||20% of projects contributing to standards in ICT in FP6 and FP7|
|Target||At least 20% of projects contributing to standards(2013 - 2015)|
|Target||At least 2-3 open access pilot manufactoring lines established by 2015|
Influencing the revenue growth of the photonics and OLAE industry and the emergence of new business ecosystems and strong alliances along and across the value chain. These increase the innovation capacity of the European photonics and OLAE industries and influence the European market share of the global photonics and OLAE production.
|Baseline||Europe's 2012 position was at 18% of total photonics production (~66/350 B€)|
|Target||Europe supplying at least 18% of market share of photonics by 2020(2020)|
Improving the technological and manufacturing capabilities and the innovation potential of the photonics and OLAE companies that are a direct result of our projects, with special emphasis on the innovation and competitive potential of SMEs (both technology providers and end-users).
|Target||At least 100 new products/processes generated by SMEs through the open access infrastructures and services that will be created under H2020 pilot production lines and SME-supporting facilities.(2020)|
Influencing the wide diffusion of photonics and OLAE technologies in many application areas addressing societal challenges.
|Target||New photonics and OLAE solutions brought to the marketplace via our projects addressing the societal challenges.(2020)|
